Swimming

As part of our extensive physical curriculum children have access to swimming lessons during year 3. A qualified swimming instructor delivers lessons to meet the government standards for swimming expectations for their age range.
These lessons will continue to be available in the following year to those children who may not reach the expected standard. 
 
*Our Swimming programme has been interrupted by Covid-19 pandemic and as such this year, 2022, we will start catch up  lessons from Friday 14th January for 10 weeks, the lessons will take place at Haverhill Leisure Centre. Please see the letter, sent out to parents, below for more information.*
