Swimming and water safety
(As taken from the Department for Education statutory guidance)
Swimming at St. Stephen's takes place at Daisyfield swimming centre with children in year 3 receiving swimming lessons on a Thursday afternoon in the Autumn, Spring and Summer terms. All children receive an hour swimming lesson each week.
Where required, we provide swimming booster sessions for the year 6 children to ensure that the expected level of proficiency is achieved.
