Swimming Pool Restoration
Following on from a lot of hard work fundraising to get the swimming pool up and running we are excited to announce that the pool is now open for action!
Due to fundraising events led by the PTFA and your support there is no charge for swimming this time round.
Each year group will have around a week of swimming sessions. This will be led by a qualified swimming coach. The timetable below shows the provisional start date and finish date for each year group. Please note that events in the school calendar and the weather could impact on these dates.
|Year||Week||Start Date||Finish Date|
|Foundation||1||23rd April 2019||26th April 2019|
|Year 1||3||7th May 2019||10th May 2019|
|Year 2||2||29th April 2019||3rd May 2019|
|Year 3||5||3rd June 2019||7th June 2019|
|Year 4||6||10th June 2019||14th June 2019|
|Year 5||7||17th June 2019||21st June 2019|
|Year 6||4||20th May 2019||24th May 2019|
Within each year group the children will be split up into two or three groups.
A reminder that all children, boys and girls, are required to wear swimming hats. This is because hair clogs the filters and we believe the cleanliness of the water is paramount. The school will have a quantity of swimming hats by the poolside; any child not wearing a hat of their own will be requested to wear one of these. Swimming hats can be purchased from the school at a cost of £2.00. Please note we do only have a limited supply. All girls should wear a one-piece costume. No jewellery should be worn in the pool, so please ensure children come to school without jewellery on the days that they swim.
