Swimming @ St. John's

 

Learning to swim is a key life-saving skill that is a vital part of growing up and our National Curriculum. As part of the PE and Sport we offer at St. John's, our children also go swimming throughout the whole of Year 5. Their swimming lessons are hosted weekly at Belper Leisure Centre and are taught by Derbyshire County Council swimming teachers and St. John's staff.

 

Each year we aim to help our children become water confident, understand water safety and swim with confidence and consistency. We assess the children's progress throughout the year using the Derbyshire County Council assessment criteria and award scheme. We also aim for all of our children to be water confident and swimming the national curriculum expected standard of 25 metres by the end of Year 6. Some of our Sport Premium funding is now being invested in extra booster sessions during the Summer term for those Year 6 children who still need extra time in the water and extra lessons before they leave for secondary school.

 

For any more information regarding swimming at St. John's, do not hesitate to ask Mr Hallam, Mr Averis or the Year 5 teaching staff.
