Our swimming pool is situated in the heart of our school and we believe that every child should have a positive, calm and safe environment to learn to swim in. The children swim weekly from reception to year 6 and, as it is part of our curriculum, all children swim regardless of their ability and our planning is inclusive of all.
In reception, typically, children gain water confidence; learn to float; put their face in the water and begin to swim. By year 6 we have built on their skills and techniques and move on to water and beach safety skills.
