Swimming @ Holy Cross

As part of our membership to the Plymouth Schools Sports Partnership, children at Holy Cross School undertake an intensive three week swimming program at some point in Year 3. 
The National target is that every child leaving primary school should be able to swim a minimum of 25 metres unsupported.
Any child that does not complete the course within the three weeks is selected to join the training again next year, whilst being encouraged to take up swimming lessons in their own time.
Last year, 60% of our Year 3 children obtained the required 25 metres unsupported swimming.
The latest survey is currently out regarding swimming ability across the school. 
As of the end of June 2018, we have 70% of children in KS2 achieving the KS2 target of 25 metres unsupported swimming.
