At the beginning of this academic year the PE department started a swimming intervention programme, involving 6 weeks of swimming lessons, with the aim of providing students with the confidence to feel safe in water, basic survival skills and swimming technique. The success of those involved in the swimming lessons has been tremendous, where all students feel more confident in deep water and have shown a vast improvement in their swimming ability. Over the rest of the year more students in Year 8 will be invited to be part of this programme.
At the end of term 1 Mr Cooper and Mrs Turner met with all the swimmers to celebrate their success, receiving certificates and badges for their achievements. Well done to the 8 students that have been involved in the swimming lessons.
