Swimming lessons

Children will all have approximately one hour in the water each week for the whole term. 

For these lessons, children will need to bring a swimsuit or swimming trunks (not baggy shorts), swimming cap, towel and if they would like – goggles. Jewellery (watches, earrings, necklaces etc) must not be worn. Children must not come to school in their swimsuits.

Every child must swim as this is part of the statutory National Curriculum. 

If you would like further information about these swimming lessons, please contact your class teacher or the office team.
