Information you need to know:

In the interests of hygiene, all children must wear a swimming hat. These are available from the school office @£2.00 each.

No earrings (even studs) or any other jewellery to be worn in the pool. These must be removed prior to swimming. Health and Safety Legislation states that children should not wear earrings for any form of P.E or swimming. If a child has recently had their ears pierced and are unable to remove them, they will not be able to swim.

  • Boys should wear swimming trunks, not shorts and girls in a one piece.
  • Goggles are only allowed to be worn from Year 3 onwards.

  • Please label clothing and towels.
  • Please be sure to send your child with a jumper, cardigan or sweatshirt, as they often feel chilly after swimming

  • If your child has a verruca we would ask that it must be treated before swimming.
  • If a child has suffered with sickness and/or diarrhoea, please be advised they will not be able to swim for two weeks.

Whilst we understand that some of our pupils may already be able to swim 25m with confidence, our qualified swimming teachers will continue to refine technique and stamina. Furthermore, in line with our teaching and learning policy, pupils who are less competent swimmers are supported and encouraged by those whom are more proficient.


Pupils are able to work towards swimming merit badges at a cost of £2.50 each. There are a range of bright, colourful, cheerful badges and certificates to help keep your child motivated and designed to test your child’s ability – celebrated in our weekly assemblies.
