Ashmead School

Ashmead provides its children with two everlasting things, one is roots, the other wings.


The children in Year 4 go swimming once a week over a course of a 12 week term Image result for aqua vale

at Aquavale.  As part of our partnership with Aquavale, we now offer provision for those children who are unable to swim 25m independently through Booster sessions.



Swimming and water safety

All schools must provide swimming instruction either in key stage 1 or key stage 2.

"In particular, pupils should be 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."
