Make a Splash
We are glad to say that the Make a Splash programme has started this week and all the children have been very excited to take part! We are very proud of the children; as this is the first time that some of the children have ever been in a swimming pool and they have all been showing our school value of confidence when over at the pool!
No watches or jewellery are allowed.
It would be really helpful if parents could make sure that children wear no jewellery at all to school on swim days.
If your child has recently got their ears pierced (under 2 months ago) please let the teacher know.
What do children need to wear?
Boys need to wear shorts, above the knee, ideally with no pockets. They may wear goggles and a swimming cap if they wish.
Girls need to wear a swimming costume (preferably not a bikini). They may wear goggles and a swimming cap if they wish. If they have long hair, they are strongly advised to wear a swimming cap. (We have a stock in school for children to borrow if they do not have one of their own).
If, for any reason, cultural or otherwise, parents wish their daughters to be more covered, they may wear tight leggings or cycling shorts, and a tight t-shirt UNDER their swimming costume.
Please ensure children bring a named towel with them on their swim days. Please make a note of the days your child’s class will be swimming and remember that everything they need must be named and brought to school in a named plastic/waterproof bag.
If you have not paid you can pay the full amount or in instalments at the office, please send this into school, ideally in a sealed, named envelope.
The pool is also available for community use after school, on Saturdays and during half term. Parents can sign their children up for additional lessons, or book to swim themselves.

THIS IS NOT MANAGED BY THE SCHOOL.
Please let all of your friends and family know about this - the more people that benefit from our pool, the better!
