Key Dates and other information

Weekly Swimming sessions will take place on a Monday morning for Yellow Class pupils to participate in. 

Please can you ensure that your child has a Swimming kit in school. This will be a swimming costume/ swim shorts, a towel and double nappy system (if required- see below for details). Please can these items be sent in a bag with your child's name on each item. We will keep the Swimming kits in school, wash weekly and send them home at the end of every Term.

If your child is not yet toilet trained the double nappy system will be required to try. A double system has 2 steps: 

Step 1 - Nappy wrap (reusable swim nappy)  Or disposable swim nappy

Step 2 – Incontinence swimwear pants/shorts that seal around the waist and thighs. 

Here is some information about incontinence swimwear pants/shorts that seal around the waist and thighs
