206 schools across Leeds use council facilities for their swimming provision!

For many children, particularly those living in more deprived areas, school may be the only opportunity they will have to learn how to swim and be safe in and around the water. Despite being on the national curriculum, around one in five children leave primary school unable to swim.

It is incredibly important that children do not miss out on School Swimming and Water Safety lessons as a result of Covid-19 as drowning remains one of the leading causes of childhood deaths.

The following organisations provide a wide range of water safety and drowning prevention resources for primary schools:


PE and Sport Premium requires schools to publish how many pupils within their year 6 cohort are meeting 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. You can get advice and resources to help deliver swimming lessons successfully in primary schools.
