Swimming and Water Safety

Halton Holegate Church of England Primary School actively promotes Swimming and Water Safety for all our children.

Our children go swimming throughout the academic year. Class 3 attend swimming lessons during Term 1, Class 2 in Term 4 and Class 1  Term 5.

Our children swim every Tuesday for a hour with JB Sports.

In our Year 6 cohort 73% are able to swim 25 metres with 64% 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. 45% are able to perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
