School Swimming

Swimming and water safety is compulsory as part of the National Curriculum, with the aim that by the age of 11 (Key Stage 2) children should be able to swim unaided for at least 25m.

Swimming is a vital skill for any child and is the only sport a child will learn in school that could save their life.

However, the quality of teaching these pupils receive during their school swimming lessons is key to their learning experience. This is why the ASA works hard to ensure it continues to work with you, the swimming teachers, to deliver quality schools swimming.

The ASA have made progress in the improvement of PE and school swimming over the past few years and with your help we will continue to do so.
