In July 2018, 93% of our Y6 pupils left Balderstone School having met the National Curriculum minimum requirements: being able to swim the minimum distance of 25m.

The remaining 7% received booster lessons for 2 terms and made great progress, but lacked the confidence to reach the required standard.
