Curriculum Intent

PE is a statutory requirement of the National Curriculum and an essential contributor to the development of the whole child. Through a high quality PE programme pupils develop physical competence and confidence and are given opportunities to be physically educated and become physically literate. Through a combination of entitlement and choice of activity, the PE provision will contribute to the personal development, health and well being, enjoyment, success and achievement of all pupils across the whole curriculum and beyond.

Swimming Data

Swimming is an important skill and can encourage a healthy and active lifestyle. All Local Authority schools must provide swimming instruction either in key stage 1 or key stage 2. The National Curriculum for PE sets out the expectation that pupils should be 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.
