Swimming Schedule for 2019-2020
Information about swimming will be updated at the beginning of term.
We have changed the way we organise swimming lessons for the children this year.
The children are being grouped by ability, within their year bands.
Each swimming group is therefore made up of a mixture of children from the classes in each year band, depending on what level of swimming they have reached. This is so every child achieves the required standard of swimming by the end of the year.
Swimming letters are sent out to parents of the children in each group via Gateway. Hard copies of the letters will also be sent home with the children. If you receive a swimming letter via Gateway, or a text to say a letter has been sent, it means your child will be going swimming on the dates shown on that letter.
The letters are ONLY sent to parents of children due to go swimming. The letters will also be available on the school website.
Your child’s teacher will have a list of the swimming groups, so please check with them if you are unsure as to when your child is going swimming.
We hope that by using this method every child will achieve and develop to the best of their individual ability.
