Swimming at Royton Hall Primary School

Swimming and water safety is an extremely important part of the PE curriculum at 

Royton Hall Primary and another way of helping children to lead healthy and active 

lives. Throughout the academic year, all pupils in Year 2 attend weekly swimming classes. 

The lessons take place at Royton Leisure Centre and are delivered by specialist teachers from the Council's school swimming service.  We expect all children to leave Royton Hall Primary having reached the National requirement by the end of Year 6. 

Pupils are grouped according to their ability and are taught to: 

  • Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 
  • metres.
  • Use a range of strokes effectively for example, front crawl, backstroke and 
  • breaststroke.
  • Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
