All pupils in Keystage 2 participated in the National Swimathon. During the Swimathon QEGS pupils challenged themselves to swim further than they have ever swum before, with very pupil who participated receiving a ‘Swim your Best’ swimming hat.
Our aim at QEGS is to teach every pupil the life skill of swimming. By the time pupils leave Year 6 it is our aim that they can all swim at least 25m of a recognised stroke.
Currently in Year 6, 97.5% of pupils can swim 25m or more in a recognised stroke.
The National Average for pupils in Year 6 to reach the minimum standard is 69%.
