Swimming

At Woodlands we are committed to ensuring swimming takes place in school. Swimming is a compulsory part of the current national curriculum for PE and will remain a compulsory part of the new curriculum when it is released.

At Woodlands we believe pupils should be taught to swim unaided for a distance of at least 25 metres, using recognised strokes, on their front and back, and demonstrate an understanding of water safety. All pupils complete a 6 week swimming programme in years 4 and 5 in order to meet  government requirements for swimming.

We use the following facilities to facilitate our swimming programme:
