The National Curriculum states: "All schools must provide swimming instruction either in Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 2. In particular, pupils should be taught to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, use a range of strokes effectively such as front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations."


Swimming lessons are offered for children in Years 3, 4 and 5 at Lent Rise School.


The swimming lessons are tailored to suit all ability ranges within a class and are lead by qualified instructors.


All children are supported to ensure they can swim a minimum of 25 metres before they leave Lent Rise School.


For further information regarding swimming, please contact the school office.
