YEAR 5 ONLY - Swimming lessons as part of the curriculum. Swimming is a vital part of each child’s education and it is a statutory part of the National Curriculum. This year we have decided to run the lessons in a block every afternoon for two weeks. This will allow children to build their skills, confidence and technique with less regression and allow the instructors to know their children better.
We will endeavour for children to be back in school for normal collection at the end of the day. The sessions will take place at Dawlish Leisure Centre pool. The children will be walked to and from the leisure centre by school staff.
Groups will be set based on children’s swimming abilities allowing for effective group sizes.
Your child will need to bring their swim wear and a small towel, in a named bag. Children can wear goggles but please note that these must be provided from home and should be named and brought in to school on the day.
Please complete the reply slip and return it to the school office no later than Friday 15th November. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to speak to me.
