Swimming

Throughout the year, children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 are given the opportunity to take part in swimming lessons to help them to achieve the National Curriculum Swimming Award. Children swim locally at Sandon Primary Academy Swimming Pool where they are taught by a qualified swimming teacher to swim. Year 2 children are also provided with the opportunity to take part in after school swimming lessons in preparation for Key Stage Two.

Swimming Kit

Please ensure that your child has a towel, a one-piece swimming suit/tight trunks, swimming cap for all girls and boys will need to wear one if their hair is long or it goes into their eyes when wet. If your child needs to wear goggles, a note needs to be written in their planner giving permission for this; however, please note that when your child completes their National Curriculum Swimming Award, they will not be allowed to wear these.
