Provision for swimming at Lower Darwen Primary School

  • Pupils in Year 5 attend weekly swimming lessons (35 weeks). Our sports coach attends swimming lessons as well as the swimming instructors so that more children can be supported during swimming lessons and the children working at above expectations can be taught in a separate group.
  • Teaching assistants use visual cards to support hearing impaired pupils and work 1:1 with the children during lessons.

 

Impact of swimming lesson expenditure

This will be evaluated in June 2021. Due to local pool closures, there have only been four sessions in the Autumn term. Currently swimming has been suspended due to Covid-19.
