ASA Insight Programme: Primary School Swimming 2012-2013b
The Governing Body of Swimming is looking to learn about your school's swimming activities; to establish the current swimming provision, identify and explore opportunities and barriers.
This survey requires you to provide some information that you may not know off the top of your head. We would like this information whether your school does or does not provide school swimming lessons. With this in mind, before completing the survey, you may wish to find out:
• How many children attended your school in academic year 2012/2013 (please provide figures for Key Stage 2, Year 6, disabled pupils in Key Stage 2 and disabled pupils in Year 6)
• How many children in your school in academic year 2012/2013 could swim 25m or further (please provide figures for Key Stage 2, Year 6, disabled pupils in Key Stage 2 and disabled pupils in Year 6)
• How many children in your school in academic year 2012/2013 could pass the Key Stage 2 swimming attainment criteria (please provide figures for Key Stage 2, Year 6, disabled pupils in Key Stage 2 and disabled pupils in Year 6). This criteria includes swimming further than 25m, floating on front and back, using recognised arm and leg actions in the water, personal survival skills such as sculling and surface diving)
• How the Sport Premium government funding has been, or will be spent at your school
And if your school provides swimming lessons to pupils, you may wish to find out:
• How many swimming lessons on average a school year receives per year, and how long are the pupils in the water for.
• How much it costs to send pupils to swimming lessons – please tell us the overall cost per pupil before any contributions are made by the PTA or parents.
• If you use an external teacher to deliver swimming lessons, what your school pays them per hour
• What the average teacher:pupil ratio is during your school’s swimming lessons
• How many teaching staff (including assistants) are at your school, and how many of these have a qualification in aquatic teaching (this might be through attending the ASA’s National Curriculum Training Programme, or a recognised UKCC level 1 or 2 aquatic qualification)
This research is being conducted by the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) in collaboration with the Institute of Youth Sport (IYS). The research has gained ethical clearance from Loughborough University's Ethical committee.
