Year 4 Swimming - Summer

Dear Parents and Carers,


During the Summer term, Ash and Birch class will be attending swimming lessons with the instructors at Central Park Leisure Centre. This will commence on Wednesday 1st May for Ash class and Monday 17th June for Birch class. The children will leave school in the afternoon, accompanied by Year 4 staff, and we will make our way to Central Park Leisure Centre. We will return to school by approximately 3:00 pm each week.

Swimming sessions that Birch class will be attending are:
Wednesday 1st May (30mins)
Wednesday 8th May  (30mins)
Monday 13th May
Monday 20th May
Monday 10th June
Monday 17th June
Monday 24th June
Monday 1st July
Monday 8th July


Please note, that due to INSET days and Bank holidays, Ash are having to move to a shorter slot on some Wednesday sessions which is why they have more sessions. Birch’s session remain uninterrupted therefore they will get full consecutive sessions.


A reminder of what your child will need:
  • Swimming costume or swimming trunks (no bikinis please!)
  • A towel
  • A named bag to carry and store their items in
  • A swimming hat
  • Goggles (not essential, but can be worn if preferred)


Please note, no aerosols or powders should be given to children, as these can cause problems for children with asthma. Please also ensure that your child brings their swim suit to change into at the pool, and does not wear it under their school uniform. Children should also be wearing shoes which they are able to take on or off quickly and without adult support.


All children, regardless of ability, will be taking part in swimming lessons as they are a National Curriculum requirement. Children will only be exempt from lessons with a signed and dated doctor’s note or certificate. If you have any questions or queries about this or any other swimming related issue, please do not hesitate to contact us.


Yours sincerely,

Miss Estall                               Miss Hamlin
