Swimming reminder

Swimming reminder


For the classes who are swimming this term, please could you make sure that your child brings their swimming kit in on Wednesday mornings. Also, if your child has long hair (past shoulder length) please could you make sure that it is plaited or that they wear a swimming hat, as the Leisure Centre has advised us that this should be done to ensure your children’s safety in the pool. Having it in a pony tail on top of their heads keeps it out of their eyes, but it splays out in the water and they are in danger of getting it caught in a filter or other children swimming into it.

Children seldom dry their hair properly when they have been swimming and they end up with very damp clothes which they then have to sit in for the rest of the afternoon. If you would like them to wear a swimming hat, we have members of staff who will help them to put it on if they have a problem.

Could we please ask all parents to ensure that their children have their PE kits in school between Mondays and Fridays, as there are quite a few children who don’t and therefore have to sit and watch the lesson instead of joining in.

Thank you for your help.
