Pupils are taught swimming from year R to year 6. Each pupil swims weekly with their class group. The pupils are assessed against swimming progression skills including:
  • Halliwick Proficiency Tests: Red, yellow and green badges (these are designed for pupils with profound and multiple learning difficulties).
  • Ducklings Awards: Ducklings 1-5: Designed for pool and water confidence.
  • Water Skills Awards: These provide greater challenge for those pupils who are showing confidence in skills and strokes previously achieved.
  • Additional accreditation is available to challenge the most able pupils further (Distance awards and life-saving for example)
