Swimming at Metheringham Primary


For the 2017 to 2018 academic year, there is a new condition requiring schools to publish how many pupils within their year 6 cohort are meeting the National Curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, use a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.


Our data for 2016/17 was 87% of our Y6 pupils (27/31) met the National Curriculum requirement as a minimum.


Our Year 6 cohort for 2017/18, will be swimming during Term 5.



Each year, all of our pupils from Reception to Year 6 take part in swimming lessons during the summer term.
