Year 6 Swimming Club 13th May - 8th July 2024

Dear Parent/Carer,

We have identified that your child was unable to swim 25m when they last swam with us in Year 4. As this is a requirement of the National Curriculum, we have organised an after-school club which will run on a Monday each week from the 13th May until the 8th July, where the aim will be to enable them to achieve this standard.

We will transport children from school at 2:45pm to 1610 where they will change, swim and then get changed back into uniform again. Once changed, the children will be taken outside the front entry of 1610 at 4:00pm, where they will need to be collected/ walk home with permission (please indicate via Sco-pay when signing up).

The club will be limited to 30 spaces and will work on a first come, first served basis. However, once your child has achieved the standard and can confidently swim 25m, they will no longer be required to attend and instead their place will be offered to a child on the waiting list. The aim of this is for us to get as many children swimming 25m as possible.

Please can I ask that if your child swims outside of school and has already achieved this standard, you let your child’s teacher know and show them evidence of this (if possible) so that we can update our records.

This club will be paid for by the Sports Premium Grant and therefore there will be no charge to you.

If you would like your child to attend this club, can you please sign up via Sco-pay as normal.

Any questions or queries please do not hesitate in contacting me.

Many Thanks,

Mr Fleet
