School Swimming and Water Safety

The Swimming Innovation project is available for the Lead Inclusion Schools that are currently participating in the project.


Funded through the Department for Education, the aim of this three year project is to improve and increase opportunities for pupils with SEND by increasing the quality and impact of PE/SS/PA provision and training through innovating new content and delivery approaches; delivering swimming and water safety lessons (experimenting with timetabling and delivery). 

Schools involved will be asked to collectively review and directly enhance swimming provision. As part of this schools will be asked to develop, test and evaluate innovative approaches (in partnership with Swim England) to address the current challenges of engagement for young people with SEND to access and/or participate in swimming opportunities.

The impact of this project will see young people with SEND offered high-quality opportunities, developing life skills, independence as well as swimming ability which will further support schools’ outcomes both for curriculum opportunities as well as life chances for their pupils.
