Swimming- SWIM!

Our children learn to swim in the summer term of Year 3. Because we recognise the important of swimming, we revist swimming lessons again in year 6 as part of CLASP. Our year  six pupil's have now all completed their 6 weeks of swimming lessons at SWIM! on Winwick Road.

Why your child should learn to swim

Swimming is really important, not only is it a fun sport, which keeps your child's heart and lungs healthy but it is an essential life-saving skill.

It is opens the door to many other different sports: if your child can swim they can also try...

Kayaking, canoeing, surfing and triathlons to name a few!
