Dear Parents and Carers,
This year, your child will be taken swimming. This is to support us in ensuring that all children will be able to swim at least 25 metres by the end of Year 6.
Swimming has been arranged and will take place every Tuesday for ten weeks. This is at no cost to yourselves as it is funded jointly by School and Telford and Wrekin Council.
Swimming lessons start on Tuesday 13th September, the last session will be Tuesday 22nd November. Your child will be taken by coach to the swimming pool.
Your child will require a swimming costume, towel, coat and bag to place wet items into. We would prefer boys to wear swimming trunks rather than shorts as most children find these easier to swim in. Girls need to bring a costume rather than a bikini/tankini. They will also need a bag to put their clothes in whilst swimming. If for any reason they are unable to attend, we must receive a letter.
This swimming lesson will be one of their PE lessons for the week.
Please give consent using your sco-pay account as we are unable to take your child without this. Your child will be taken by a teacher and a teaching assistant, and we will be joined by a swimming teacher and life guard; if you have any particular questions concerning these lessons, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.
Please give your consent for your child to take part in these swimming lessons using your scopay account by Wednesday 20th July
Mrs J Weichlbauer
