The essential life skill for every child

Swimming and water safety education is non-negotiable as part of the national curriculum. Yet, according to Sport England, a staggering 1 in 4 children in England leaves primary school unable to swim 25 metres or execute essential self-rescue. Without intervention, this could escalate to 1 in 3 children by 2025 — a scenario we cannot afford.

Swimming is the only lesson in school that can save a life and every child should be given the opportunity to learn how to swim. Swim:ED is here to bridge this gap, transforming swimming education in primary schools.

Swim:ED is making a splash!

We’re proud of the transformative effect Swim:ED has had on swimming proficiency and water safety in primary schools.

But don’t just take our word for it – hear it directly from the people that matter.

We loved having the swimming pool at Oasis Bank Leaze. As well as it being such an exciting experience that the children were so proud of, we saw so many other benefits, too. The children swam further than they had in previous years at the local leisure centre, school attendance improved for the period of the pool, and most importantly, the children saw themselves as swimmers and wanted to learn more. We can't wait for next year!

Swim:ED has revolutionised swimming lessons at Timberley Primary Academy, saving us logistical challenges and assisting Year 6 attendance. With improved swimming skills and heightened water safety awareness, the impact on our children is beyond measure.

''The progress made by the children and the confidence they had in the water was more than we could have hoped for. All of the children loved the sessions and the small group numbers meant that lessons were individualised. The sessions ran smoothly with no disruption to the rest of the school.

Chris HattamHeadteacher, Westbourne School

Swimming progress and attainment have improved at an incredible rate during the 6 weeks that the pop-up pool was on site. Our pupils have all developed their resilience and perseverance as well as their swimming skills for life.
