School Swimming Certificates
School Swimming and Water Safety Awards
Below you will find certificates for the eight School Swimming and Water Safety Awards.When your pupil completes each Award, make sure you reward them with their certificate – each certificate tells pupils what they are now able to do by listing the Award outcomes on the back.
Remember to also give them their achievement sticker for their progress card (passport), which are supplied in your physical resource pack.
School Swimming Foundation Awards
Below you will find certificates for School Swimming Foundation Awards 1-5 and Water Safety Awareness Award.
These Awards are a precursor to the School Swimming Awards and are ideal for those pupils who are taking smaller steps to achieve the full national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety.
The School Swimming Foundation Awards support campaigns such as Inclusion 2020.
A teacher’s guide on how to deliver these Awards effectively is supplied in the Guidance Documents section. Sticker packs and progress cards to support these Awards will be released later in 2020.
