School Swimming

Last updated:

Buckinghamshire Council commissioned the Bucks School Swimming Partnership (BSSP) to provide school swimming information, advice and guidance to Buckinghamshire schools on safe practice in school swimming and water safety.  

Buckinghamshire Council produced a Safe Practice in School Swimming Policy and Guidance which sets out clear and concise information. This service provides guidance and advice on best practices in school swimming, whether at a school pool, hydrotherapy pool, public pool or during school visits. 

This policy was written with all the major stakeholders in swimming and water safety. A link to the policy can be found here - Safe Practice in School Swimming Policy and Guidance  

We have also produced Schemes of Work in alignment with our School Swimming Awards & Certificates.  Termly newsletters and lots of other information and useful resources are available on our website; 

The BSSP provide an essential Swim England National Curriculum Training Programme (NCTP) to enable school staff to safely support and undertake school swimming as per the policy. 

We firmly believe that a collaborative approach between schools, leisure centres and other providers, ensures a consistent joined-up approach in the planning and delivery of safe, high-quality school swimming lessons.
