Being a Swimmer

Swimming is not only a fun activity with great health benefits but is also one of the only skills we learn which may help save your life.  That is why we put a great focus on learning to swim and water safety. 

All year groups from Year R to Year 6 get the opportunity to swim for a whole term.  In Years 4 and 5, the children swim every week which we have found is the best age for them to learn how to swim. 

The Pond

The Pond allows all our children the important skill of water safety and swimming.  Through regular lessons, the children will learn these key skills. 

The children in Years 4 and 5 swim every week.  Other year group take it in turns having a term each to swim.  The final term is given over to Year 6s who need extra input. 

Last year, 100% of our Year 6 children left the school being able to swim.
