I am pleased to inform you of the swimming arrangements for this year.

Swimming lessons will be provided for Years 2-6 on either Wednesday or Thursday afternoons. These lessons will be in ability based groups which will be organised after an assessment session on Thursday 25 May. Please could Years 2-6 bring in a swimming costume/trunks and a towel. The coaches will assess the children so that your child will be placed in the appropriate group when swimming lessons start. The aim of swimming lessons will be so that children can swim at least 25m (two lengths of our pool).

There will be additional swimming opportunities for all of our pupils. Swimming clubs will be available for £2 for a 30 minute session, providing 4 sessions of 10 pupils. Please could you indicate if your child is a beginner or needs to develop their strokes so we can place them in the correct group. There will be 6 sessions and the £12 will need to be paid at the start of the term please.

Finally we are offering small group (three pupils) swimming sessions on Friday mornings if sufficient parents would like their children to take part. These session will cost £5 for 30 minutes, totalling £30 for 6 weeks which will need to be paid for at the start of the term please.

As with all PE sessions, pupils will need to remove their earrings. Children cannot wear beach shorts or bikinis.
