Year 6 Swimming

Dear parents/carers,


We’re delighted to tell you that we have been able to book swimming lessons for our Year 6 pupils.

Learning to swim is a curriculum requirement and all children are expected to attend the lessons as part of their PE learning; the National Curriculum states that children should be able to swim 25m by the end of year 6.

The lessons will take the form of an intensive course with 5 one-hour lessons taking place over the course of the week June 6th to 10th.

The lessons will be at Dawlish Leisure Centre and will be taught by their staff. Children will work in ability groups determined by the instructors at the start of the course.

The lessons will run from 1.30 – 2.30. Children will be transported by minibus.

The school is meeting the cost of the lessons; the cost of the transport is £10.94 and this can be paid via the School Money app.

More information will follow closer to the time.


Many thanks,


Jonathan Ball
