DfE is pleased to be working closely with the Royal Life Saving Society UK and Swim England to support the Drowning Prevention Week between 14th - 24thJune.
Schools have an important role to play in ensuring all pupils know how to swim and be safe in and around the water. Further information about the week/free resources available to schools are available here.
Swim Safe Programme: Schools can get their children ready for safe swimming in open water by engaging in the FREE Swim Safe programme. This programme enables outdoor swimming and water safety sessions to be delivered to school groups at both coastal and inland locations. Let's encourage all children to swim safe this summer!
