At Pallister Park we place a high value on children being able to swim. Not only is swimming a key life skill but it is an important way of helping to children to realise how sport can impact on their health, fitness and wellbeing.
Pallister Park is committed to providing their children with regular swimming lessons from Year 2 to Year 6. We spend approximately £20000 on swimming lessons for children.
Throughout the year, groups of children will attend a range of swimming lessons over a range of time frames. During the first half of the year, all Year 2, 3 & 4 children take part in a two week, daily block of lessons that results in an intensive learning curve. In the summer term, all Key Stage 2 children attend 12 weekly sessions giving them the opportunity for a longer term learning curve. In addition to this any Year 5 or Year 6 children who can’t swim 25m will be provided with an extra weekly session to boost both confidence and ability.
