Shaugh Prior Primary School


Swimming at Shaugh Prior


We are very fortunate to have our very own swimming pool, which we use most days in the summer term.  It helps us to become more confident in the water; we learn how to stay safe, improve  our technique and stamina. This all helps us to develop our ability to swim 25 metres and beyond by the time we leave Primary School.  It's SO much FUN! 


Swimming proficiency report 2017/2018


100% of our year 6 cohort have met the national curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, use a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
