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 weekly every other half term.
Where required, we provide swimming booster sessions for the year 6 children to ensure that the expected level of proficiency is achieved.
