This funding will be ring fenced and will be allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with a dedicated resource to buy in invaluable expertise and support. Funding will be allocated through a lump sum for each school and a per-pupil top-up mechanism. The formula will reference the number of primary-aged pupils (i.e. children between the ages of 5 and 11).
Swimming at Cardinham School
At Cardinham school pupils swim every term in years 1 through 6. We feel that living in this part of the UK, so close to the coast, it is vital that our pupils learn to swim confidently as soon as possible.
All pupils are taught to:
- Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
- Use a range of strokes effectively
- Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
