Primary Swimming Progress

STAnley Swimming Awards

 

At Penn Fields, we follow the Swimming Teachers’ Association (STA) International Learn to Swim Programme. The initial STAnley First Steps series of seven swimming awards focus on the basics of swimming and water safety skills. Penn Fields has adopted this programme to develop our primary student’s confidence in water and basic swimming skills.

After completing the Stanley First Steps series, Penn Fields swimmers progress to the Goldfish, then Octopus Series.

Distance Swimming Awards

The National Curriculum states that all primary aged students must be provided with swimming and water safety lessons in either Key Stage 1 or 2. Furthermore, it states that by the end of Year 6, all students should be able to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres. Our students continue to work towards challenging, yet achievable, swimming goals according to their physical abilities. From September 2022 we will be able to offer off-site swimming for some students in Year 6 to support their distance swimming and achieving the recommended goal.
