Dear Parent/Carer


We are writing to advise you of the arrangements for the Year 3 Swimming Programme for Autumn/Spring 2019/2020 term. The children will have 8 weeks of 45-minute swimming sessions from Monday 11th November 2019 to Monday 16th December 2019, and Monday 6th January 2020 to Monday 13th January 2020 at 1610 Chilton Sports Centre.


Autumn Term

Spring Term














The school will fund the cost of the swimming tuition and we are asking for parents to contribute for the transport only which will be a cost of £15.00.  You can pay by cash, online or cheque (cheques to be made payable to ‘Somerset County Council’). If insufficient contributions are made towards transport costs, we may have to consider alternative arrangements ie: walking to and from the swimming pool.


Swimming forms a crucial and compulsory part of the children’s P.E. curriculum and is a ‘life-skill’ that children need for their own safety.  We hope that you will be able to support the school in fulfilling the swimming programme by ensuring that your child has a swimming kit with them on swimming days.



Yours sincerely


Year 3 Class Teachers
