We're a school with a pool!


Resuscitation Course for Parents

Each year the school tries to offer swimming classes to all pupils during the summer term. In order for these
lessons to take place, we need parent volunteers who have attended the resuscitation training to help.

Please contact the school office if you are able to help with swimming lessons this summer.

Please note that if you would like to hire the pool after school, for health and safety reasons two people must
have attended the school’s resuscitation training.

School Pool Timetable

Swimming lessons begin: TBC

Swimming timetable: TBC

Please provide your child with a named swimming costume and towel in a swimming bag. For girls, a one piece swimming costume is required and for boys trunks. Children may bring goggles but please ensure that these are clearly named. Children with long hair MUST wear a swimming hat. Earrings also need to be removed for swimming.  It is also helpful for children to have poolside footwear (eg flip flops or crocs) so that they can walk from classrooms to pool and change footwear quickly. Thank you.

Year 6 Swimming and Water Safety

As part of the curriculum, in the summer term, Year 6 enjoy a day trip of Open-water swimming and Paddle-boarding at Milton Country Park.

Milton Country Park is managed by registered charity Cambridge Sports Lakes Trust. The children will take part in the National Swim Safe programme for Swim England where they will learn how to safely be in water if they fell in or got into difficulties. They will then enjoy some paddle-boarding before a packed lunch in the country park.

Renovated Pool

In the summer term of 2011 our renovated pool was opened for school use, giving pupils the opportunity to improve their swimming skills and have fun. Many fundraising events took place in order that the renovations could go ahead.

In May 2011, the Grammy Award winning King's Singers performed a charity concert in our local church, helping our school to raise the funds needed for our pool.
