All children at Preston receive regular lessons in the school's outdoor heated swimming pool. The pool is open throughout the warmer months, and offers an encouraging, warm and safe environment for children to develop their swimming skills.
It is so exciting that COVID guidance now allows swimming pools to be open. Our school swimming pool will open after the May half term, with all children receiving weekly lessons up until the October half term. Please note that swimming sessions replace previous PE days.
|Unit 2 (Owl classes)||Mondays|

Please ensure that your child brings their swimming kit into school on the relevant day. Your child/ren will need: • One piece swimming costume for girls • Sensible swimming trunks/shorts for boys (not knee length) • Towel • Swimming hat for any child with hair that is collar length or longer to keep hair out of the eyes • Jelly shoes, crocs, plimsolls or flip flops • Goggles - Optional
Please note: We do not keep spare towels or costumes in school which means that children without the correct kit will not be able to swim.
