All children in Year 4 take part in swimming lessons at Bramcote Leisure Centre.  The sessions are every Thursday afternoon.

For the 2023-24 school year, the dates for each class are:

Thursday 14th September 2023 to Thursday 30th November 2023

Herons, Robins and half of Puffins class.

For parents with a child in Puffins, you will have been notified directly as to which sessions your child is attending.

Children must have their full swimming kit in school every Thursday for the dates they are attending.

Swimming Kit

Girls: One piece swimming costume, no two-piece costumes are allowed
Boys: Speedo-type trunks or tight shorts, no baggy shorts or shorts with pockets are allowed

Long hair must be tied back; jewellery and earrings must be removed. Swim hats are allowed.

The instructors would prefer all swimmers to be capable without goggles as swimming is being taught as a life skill. If children want to wear goggles then parental permission is required. You must have given permission for your child to wear goggles in the consent form that you completed in July when your child was in Year 3.
