We work with children of all ages to offer them a comprehensive programme of learning which can feed into further opportunities in the water outside of the school environment.

Everyone Active have two School Swimming delivery methods available:

  1. Intensive 15 day model
  2. Weekly Term Time model

All will be familiar with the weekly term time model, and less familiar with the concept of students attending for 15 consecutive days (the intensive model)

The National School Swimming Census armed us with the knowledge that 45% of all primary school children aged 7-11yrs were unable to swim 25 metres unaided, which is the requirement for Key Stage 2. In addition, 1 in 14 Primary Schools were not even offering swimming as a provision for their students.

Everyone Active programmes are developed around Aquatics, not just swimming.

Children are encouraged, in the first instance with soft balls, throwing and catching, splashing and reaching and for those that had some ability, swimming, water polo, synchro and diving are introduced.

The intensive model has supported behaviour change and strong outcomes:

  • The opportunity to avoid a lesson has been removed.
  • Progress is a priority.
  • School teachers have responded with praise & reported a growth in student confidence.
  • Data is recorded on all swimmers, tracking progress and development over the period.

The weekly model supports the schools existing timetable model:

  • The opportunity to build upon weekly attendances.
  • Progress is a priority.
  • School teachers equally respond with praise and value on going input regarding water safety & development
  • Data is recorded on all swimmers, tracking progress and development over the period.

All teachers are:

  • Swim England Level two qualified,
  • Hold a current Disclosure and Barring Service check
  • Attended safeguarding training.
  • Attend update training in the form of Continuous Professional Development
