Swimming

Once children are in Key Stage 2 (Year 3) they are given the very valuable opportunity to learn to swim, funded by School.  All children in KS2; yr 3 - yr 6 will swim over a half term (approx' 6 weeks). Children are transported to Worksop Leisure Centre by school staff, to swim on Wednesdays' at 10:30am-11:30am. Parents/Carers will need to provide a suitable swimming kit as outlined below and a towel. Parents will be informed when it is their child's turn to swim. Please speak to your child's class teacher if you can spare the time to be an observer during your child's swimming lesson for the duration of the half-term.
