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]

Letters and Sounds: Principles and Practice of High Quality Phonics information
Phonics Progression Tracking Sheet. This shows the progression through the phases of the Letters and Sounds phonics programme that the school uses as a basis for the teaching of phonics. It sets out the expectation within and for each stage. The children are individually placed on the appropriate space on the grid in relation to their progression through the phases. This is tracked 6 times a year. The groups the children work in are adjusted accordingly, however they may be changed between formal assessment periods.
