Swimming at Hungerford Primary School

Children have swimming lessons during the summer term in Year 5 at Hungerford Primary School and use the local leisure centre which is within walking distance of the school.

We currently ask for a voluntary contribution of £20 per child to help fund the use of an additional swimming coach so that the children have more opportunity to be in the water. Teaching staff are expected to act as assistants if required.

The aim is for every child to be able to swim at least 25 metres by the time they leave school. If a child cannot do this by the end of their lessons in Year 5, pupils will be given additional lessons during the summer term in Year 6.

Impact of swimming instruction at Hungerford Primary School:

Number of children in Year 5 cohort

Number of children able to swim 25 metres by the end of year 5 (2018)

Number of children able to swim 25 metres by the end of year 6 (2019)

59

49

 

May 2019:  84.5% of the current Y6 cohort are able to swim 25 metres confidently.
