We are delighted to inform you that swimming lessons have been arranged and will take place every Thursday for eight weeks for all pupils in Year 6. 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. This is at no cost to yourselves as it is funded by Ladygrove Primary School.
Swimming lessons start on Thursday 19th May, the last session will be Thursday 14th July. 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 can we ask you to tick the consent box using your scopay account by Wednesday 11th May, 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 another swimming teacher; if you have any particular questions concerning these lessons, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.
