At St Edward's children start swimming lessons in Year 3 - the lessons last for 2 terms and are subsidized using the Sports Premium Grant. That class then go again when they are in Year 4 and again in Year 5.
It is hoped that, after 3 years of swimming lessons, children are able to swim. As Sheerness is by the sea and on an Island, we believe swimming to be an essential life skill. Children should be taught how to safely self-rescue in different water-based situations.
In June 2018 we offered booster swimming lessons to non swimming Year 6 pupils. After this week:
20/28 pupils could swim competently and confidently, over a distance of 25m. They used a range of strokes effectively.
1/28 pupil could swim 20m
5/28 pupils could swim 10m
2/28 pupils remained non swimmers
