Swimming at Gilmour

Swimming is an important skill and can encourage a healthy and active lifestyle. All Local Authority schools must provide swimming instruction either in key stage 1 or key stage 2. The programme of study for PE sets out the expectation that 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.
