We’re taking school swimming seriously.
We are delighted to advise you that we have recently signed up to the School Swimming Charter, which means that we are in partnership with the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA), the national governing body for swimming in England.
As a school we have taken the decision to ‘Take School Swimming Seriously’ and we will now receive a comprehensive package of support from the ASA to ensure we deliver consistently high quality swimming lessons for your child.
School Swimming Champion – your key contact
As the school’s designated School Swimming Champion, I am now the central point of contact for yourselves, your child, school staff, and our swimming lesson provider. I will undertake the necessary co-ordination and communication tasks to ensure we are making maximum use of the resources and support provided in the School Swimming Charter.
Your role is vital
We take school swimming seriously and hope that you will join us in encouraging your child to take part and do their best during lessons.
As well as making sure your child has everything they need to participate in their school swimming sessions, it is important that you take an active interest in your child’s progress in learning to swim. You will find this easier as we will be continually updating you on their attainment levels throughout the programme of school swimming lessons.
Together we can ensure that school swimming is an enjoyable, memorable and valuable learning experience which will result in them gaining an essential life skill.
Your child’s School Swimming Passport
This is an important document that charts your child’s progress and is a permanent record of their school swimming participation and attainment level. Please help your child to keep it safe as it will be passed on if your child changes school and when they move onto secondary school.
I will be in touch again soon with more details, in the meantime if you have any concerns or queries, please see me at school for a chat.
Mr M Neville
School Swimming Champion
