Year 2 - Swimming Lessons

 

Dear Parents,

 

It is proposed to take Year 2 to The Laura Trott centre for swimming lessons starting Thursday 20th April until 20th July 2017. Both classes will be going on the same day but at different times. There will be qualified swimming instructors in charge as well as teachers plus the additional help of parents. There is NO charge for this activity. It is paid for from the school’s PE premium.

 

You should be aware that there is a 15 minute walk either side of the swimming session which involves crossing the main road at the Old Pond in Cheshunt. Please ensure your child has a suitable waterproof jacket/coat on swimming days, as we will go whatever the weather.

 

Please would you ensure that on Thursday morning the girls bring a suitable one piece swimming costume and towel and the boys bring swimming trunks (not shorts/Bermuda) and a towel. Please note all children must now wear a swimming hatAny children without hats will not able to swim. This is a Laura Trott Centre rule.

 

In line with the normal procedures for PE earrings should not be worn. Unless a doctor’s letter is provided, goggles cannot be worn. If your child has a verruca a swimming sock should be worn or they should be covered with special verruca liquid obtained from the chemist.

 

If you do not wish your child to have swimming lessons please contact the head immediately. If for some medical reason your child is unable to go swimming at any time please would you let your child’s class teacher know.

 

We need parents to help supervise the children in walking to and from The Laura Trott centre and also in the changing room. Under current regulations these parents would need to undergo a Criminal Record Bureau (A DBS check). If you can help on a regular basis please indicate on the form attached and we will contact you.

 

All permission slips must be returned to school by Friday 31st March 2017

 

Yours sincerely

 

 

 

Mr N Norman

Head Teacher
