Swimming

Over the past few years Bradford has made huge progress with the schools swimming programme, Let’s Get Wet!  Learning to swim is important to all pupils as part of an active and healthy lifestyle.  Participation in school swimming contributes to the target of quality PE time each week for every child.  Swimming is one of the eight strands of national PE School Sport Partnerships.  Children in Year 5 attend swimming lessons at Bingley Swimming Pool from Spring Term 2 (after Feb half-term) until the end of the academic year (summer break).

The co-operation between Bradford Aquatics and Harden Primary School has had a positive effect for our children.  Following the success of last year’s swimming cohort (now year 6), we are pleased to announce the following:

100% Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres.

100% Use a range of strokes effectively

62% Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
