Swimming forms a key part of our PE curriculum at Bosbury. It is an essential life skill and we believe that all children should be able to swim competently by the time they leave us.
Each year group bar Reception and Year 6 will have the opportunity of ten swimming sessions at Ledbury Swimming Pool during one of the three terms, with these sessions taking place on Friday afternoons straight after lunchtime. Therefore, it is essential that your child has their swimming kit with them in school (along with any relevant medication or inhalers) if it is their turn to swim!
Our swimming stages are arranged into the following nine awards in the order in which a child attains them:
WATER CONFIDENCE CERTIFICATE
PRELIMINARY WATER SAFETY AWARD
PERSONAL SURVIVAL LEVEL ONE
PERSONAL SURVIVAL LEVEL TWO
By the time a child reaches the end of Year 5, it is our aim that they have achieved at least the national GREEN BADGE standard ie. swimming 15 metres (one length) of the pool using their preferred stroke out of front crawl and backstroke without their feet touching the floor, swimming one width of the pool using the stroke not attempted for the length again with feet off the floor, pushing and holding a glide for five seconds on the surface of the water on both front and back, and treading water for at least 15 seconds.
A child will have the opportunity to join the Year 5 group when it is their turn to swim if they have still not achieved their GREEN BADGE by the time they are in Year 6. With another ten sessions of practice, most children will have achieved this aim!
The majority of children go on to achieve their YELLOW BADGE and BLUE BADGE as well, with some even going on further to achieve the even more advanced PERSONAL SURVIVAL awards - wow!
