We are very fortunate to have our own swimming pool at Grand Avenue which is maintained by the School with the fundraising support of GASPA.
Children have swimming lesson with a fully qualified swimming instructor who encourages and motivates the children during their swimming lessons. Class reps organise a rota where parents are asked to help assist with the collection of children to/from the classroom to the pool, helping the children to undress/dress etc.. Any parents which volunteer to help must have a valid Grand Avenue DBS check and must attend a pool induction meeting which is arranged via the School Office
New Changing Rooms
The School and GASPA have recently worked together to progress the redevelopment of the new changing rooms and enclosure with our main goal of having the pool in use all year round now achieved. This was an exciting project which will benefit all the children in the future and help to generate an income to keep the pool functioning in years to come.
Independent Swim Schools use the School pool to run classes after School and at weekends. For more information please look out for the Swim Schools flyers which come home in the children’s book bags or contact the School Office for more information.
