Swimming and water safety

All schools must provide swimming instruction either in key stage 1 or key stage 2. At Burham CE Primary School all our Key Stage 2 children receive swimming lessons:

  • Year 6 Term 1
  • Year 5 Term 2
  • Year 4 Term 3
  • Year 3 Term 4

Our pupils are taught 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

100% of Year 6 (2017) achieved their target.
