Below is the Swim England School Swimming Assessment Tool. It’s an easy-to-use digital action planning document that can be used to improve school swimming for pupils with SEND.
The tool guides discussion between schools, swimming lesson providers and pool operators so barriers to participation can be identified and solutions implemented by adapting lesson plans and facilities.
