Swimming!

*UPDATE* Children with swimming should come in in their PE kit for swimming. This will make the changing process more swift and simple!

In order to ensure the fairest possible system, we’ve made some changes to the way that swimming lessons will work this year!

Every year group in KS2 is now going to get a chance to go swimming.

In the first term (the one we’re currently in), Year 3 will be swimming all term.

In the Spring term (starting in January), Year 4 will be swimming all term.

In the Summer term (our final term), Year 5 will be swimming for the first half term, and Year 6 will be swimming in the second half term.

You will be reminded of this by your class teacher nearer the time, but we wanted to give everyone fair warning.

And parents, please remember that every child needs a swimming hat and that girls should be wearing a swimsuit or burkini, rather than a two-piece bikini. Boys should have swimming trunks (shorts or brief styles are both fine). Please don’t send your child in with non-swimming specific sportswear, such as running shorts, as these will not suffice!

Swimming always takes place on Tuesdays.

  1. This is great news that all KS2 children are getting the opportunity to swim again. Swimming is a life saving skill and something everyone should learn to do. A good decision, thank you. Lucy

  2. Hi Lucy,

    Thank you for your comment and the positive feedback. I’m glad that parents agree that this is the best way forward. We hope this will help to improve all children’s swimming proficiency across the school!

    Best wishes,
    Attie
