End of Key Stage 2 Swimming Assessment Data

Sidegate has an onsite shallow water pool (1m deep). All pupils swim in our school pool once a week from Spring Term in Year R to Summer Term in Year 5; these lessons are taught by qualified swimming teachers. In the Autumn Term of Year 6 our pupils travel to a local pool to perfect their deep water skills. A lunchtime swimming club is held for Year 5 and 6 pupils who would like to represent the school in the local and county swimming galas. Please note that Sidegate has a Specialist Provision (SEU) for pupils with moderate learning difficulties and a complexity of need; some of these pupils have physical conditions or coordination problems that impact on their ability to swim. This data is shown with and without the SEU pupils included.
