Safe Practice in School Swimming Policy & Guidance

Bucks Safe Practice Policy & Guidance

An At a GlanceChecklist of Requirements’  on Pages 15-16 of the policy document is useful for your quick reference to avoid non-compliance.

In addition to trained specialist swimming teachers, there should be a minimum of 2 school staff accompanying school swimming who must be qualified in either the Support Teacher or Teacher of School Swimming.

Swim England recommends that staff upskill or refresh within a 5 year period due to significant changes in the National Curriculum.

This year we have produced a Kitemark as a sign of recognition for those schools whose results demonstrate Safe Practice in the delivery of their School Swimming Programme.

Over 80 schools in Buckinghamshire have been awarded this accolade and can now display this kitemark on their website and across their digital media platforms.
