Children are usually taught swimming in Years 3, 4 and 5 at St Anthony's. However, due to COVID 19 and the resulting pool closures the children's swimming curriculum has been unavoidably disrupted in the school years 2019/20 and 2020/21. Due to changes with the restrictions, children did not receive their full swimming lesson provision as the pool was closed.
Children who can swim 25 metres (March 2022)
Year 3 (23 children out of 30) 77%
Year 4 (21 children out of 30) 70%
Year 5 (27 children out of 31) 87%
Year 6 (25 children out of 30) 83%
Children are taught swimming in Years 3, 4 and 5 at St Anthony's. Year 5 swim in Autumn, Year 3 swim in Spring, Year 4 swim in Summer. This information will be updated regularly in line with progress.
In Summer and Autumn 2021 additional boost swimming weeks were offered to children who could not swim 25 metres. Many of our children in Year 5 have been lucky enough to be selected for these sessions due to applications by the senior leadership team. These have greatly assisted our swimming catch up strategy.
