*****Due to the Coronavirus outbreak and closure of the Kingfisher Leisure Centre the school is unable to schedule swimming lessons at this current point in time. We hope to be able to hold lessons again in the spring or summer terms *****
The school's aim is for all children, by the time they reach Year 6, to swim competently and proficiently over a distance of 25 metres, and to be able to use a range of strokes in order for them to be safe in the water.
Year 4 will take part in swimming lessons at Kingfisher Leisure Centre during the Summer term. The sessions are for 10 weeks and last half an hour. The children are streamed dependant on ability: beginner, intermediate and advanced and assessed by the pool instructor.
To cover the costs of the hire of the pool and the swimming instructor the school will be asking for a voluntary contribution. The school does not receive any extra funding for lessons so relies on these to be able to fund this activity. All payments will need to made through ParentPay as we are a cashless school. If your child is unable to attend any of the sessions it will unfortunately not be possible to provide a refund as the costs will still need to be met by the school.
