Intent of our Swimming Provision
As part of our PE curriculum we provide our Upper KS2 pupils (Yr5 & Yr6) the opportunity to learn and develop their swimming skills. It is our aim that ALL of our pupils will access swimming lessons during their time at Whitehouse Community Primary School. Additional funding from the PE Premium is also being utilised to provide additional swimming lessons during the summer term to year 6 pupils. The additional swimming sessions provides selected pupils the additional opportunity to achieve the recommended swimming achievements as outlined in the KS2 PE National Curriculum.
