Top Up Swimming

What is top up swimming?

Top up swimming is an intervention designed to enable every child to achieve the KS2 standard in swimming at primary school. Pupils will also be expected to develop the other range of skills related to the KS2 requirements, which are about general water confidence and watersafety.  The extra lessons that top up swimming involves are designed to build on the existing swimming arrangements that a school should be running. It exists to support pupils during term time.  Top up swimming can take different forms.
