Every week a group of children travel to Stratford upon Avon Leisure Centre for a 30 minute swimming lesson. Every child will swim for part of the year.  The younger children in school will swim for most of the year with the number of swimming sessions reducing as the children get older and more competent.

At the swimming pool the children are grouped according to their swimming ability and as progress is made changes are made to the groups. Activities range from basic getting to feel confident in the water for those who can’t yet swim through to the development of swimming techniques of the more able swimmers. The lessons are led by qualified instructors from the Leisure Centre and also by school staff. The aim is to make the lessons both fun and engaging.

The cost is £3 per session which covers the coach and pool hire.

Children need:

  • A swimming costume (one piece for girls and no long shorts for boys)
  • A towel
  • A swimming hat (available to purchase from school)
  • Some choose to have swimming goggles but these are optional

 

If a child is unable to swim due to medical advice the school should be informed by calling at the office, telephoning or sending in a letter.
