Swimming lessons will be for Y5 and Y6 on Monday mornings at the local leisure facility, The Healthy Living Centre in Staveley. These lessons are delivered by the Derbyshire school swimming instructors. Y5 will have lessons throughout the year. Each Y6 class will have a term of lessons followed by an extra term for those who require more time to achieve the National Curriculum objectives. These are to:

  • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres 
  • use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]
  • perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
