Ensure Your School is National Curriculum Compliant

child swimming in school swimming lessonTeaching swimming and water safety during Key Stage 1 or 2 is a requirement of the national curriculum PE programme of study. There is no current teaching requirement in Key Stages 3, 4 or 5.

Maintained schools, including those that convert to academies, must publish information about their use of the Primary PE and Sport Premium. This should be published on the school’s website by no later than the end of the current academic year or 31st July, whichever comes first.

Since 2017, it has been a requirement to include the attainment figures of all year 6 pupils for swimming and water safety.  It’s important schools share these attainment figures for parents to be aware of their child’s abilities. In place of a more formal reporting method, it also allows secondary schools the ability to access the information.

Schools are responsible for collecting the data for each pupil. If school swimming and water safety lessons are provided by a third party, such as a pool operator or swim school, teachers should request this information at the end of each swimming term or block of lessons.

Support materials for completing the reporting template are listed below.

The Association for Physical Education (AfPE) provide guidance and a template for reporting the use of the Primary PE and Sports Premium.
