Simming National Curriculum Requirements

Schools must 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.

In Year 6 at Shalfleet we have 24 children:

4 children are unable to swim 25 metres competently or self rescue

12 children can swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres

3 children can use a range of strokes effectively over a distance of at least 25 metres

5 children can swim a range of strokes and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations

We are extremely lucky to have am experienced Sports Coach that works across the Federation to deliver our curriculm PE lessons and also lots of after school and extra curriclum activities to keep our childen active and happy!

“Having previously been at Gurnard Primary, I now work across both Yarmouth and Shalfleet as a sports coach. My job is to work with the teachers to provide as many opportunities as possible for the children to experience sport in the school. This is done in PE, but also by running competitions and sports festivals across the year and being as inclusive as possible. With the support of the school leadership, Yarmouth pupils have already increased their sporting activities greatly and and as well as the conventional sports of football, cricket and athletics etc, they have also had the opportunity to take part in wheelchair basketball, boccia and new age kurling. My aim is to continue and improve this at Yarmouth and build on the excellent sporting base already at Shalfleet to provide all the children with great memories of sports at primary school.”
