Our Swimming Pool
We are very proud to have our own heated swimming pool. Built in the 1970s we have been able to keep it functioning while many schools have had to close similar facilities. It is located in an enclosed 'suntrap' location near to the playground. The pool is approximately 80 cm deep and is ideal for learning to swim and developing strokes. There are purpose built changing rooms, a fully fitted pump and heating shed and an elevated viewing area which benefits from 'astroturf' and, during the summer months, has a gazebo to keep the children both shaded and cool. Every child receives at least 25 swimming lessons every year during June and July.
In Term 6 every pupil swims every day (for a six week period).
The PSFA support the pool financially and the school caretaker, Mr Richardson, gives the pool many hours of loving attention every year to ensure that all goes smoothly. Our current swimming teacher is Miss Stephanie Gladding.
Please note that we cannot allow pupils into the pool with earrings or plasters as these can cause expensive damage!
