This inspection of swimming in Key Stage 2 reports, in particular, on the standards of pupils’ attainment and progress, and the quality of teaching and provision. It draws on evidence based on the inspection of 301 schools in November 1999 by independent inspectors as an additional part of the Section 10 inspections of these schools. As well as inspectors’ qualitative judgement, data from these inspections were analysed by OFSTED in order to provide a clearly focused statistical evidence base for the production of this report. The statistical procedures analysed evidence in terms of the total sample, but also in relation to the location of the schools and their free school meal (FSM) banding*
At the time of the inspection the statutory curriculum requirements were that all schools providing for Key Stage 2, as well as Key Stage 1, should teach a broad and balanced curriculum including the ten National Curriculum subjects and religious education. Although, from September 1998 to September 2000, the Government introduced a temporary suspension of the full National Curriculum requirements in primary schools in order that they might focus their attention on the development of the National Literacy and Numeracy Strategies, swimming remained a compulsory element of the curriculum.
