Dear Parents,

I am pleased to let you know that once again we have decided to open our pool to the children on Sunday mornings.  There will be two sessions, one from 1000 – 1050 for Years 5&6 and one from 1100 – 1150 for Years 3&4.  I am really sorry that we cannot do a session for Pre-prep, but they are in a different bubble and this necessitates a greater level of more-time consuming cleaning between sessions.

The session will consist of swimming lengths, widths, exercises and ball games.  Unfortunately parents cannot stay and watch, but you are welcome to go for a walk around the fields and footpaths around the school, wait in your car or go home and come back.  What I would ask is that you return in plenty of time for the end of the session, because we will not be able to supervise children outside the pool once the session is finished.  You will need to collect your child from outside the pool.

Mrs Emmerson-Friend will be assisting me with these sessions and I really am grateful to her for her support.  There will be no charge for participation, but you will need to pre-book as we can only accommodate 14 children for each session.

The children should come changed and will change back poolside rather than using the changing rooms at the end of the session, so please ensure that they have a towel and easy clothes to change into.

If every child could bring a swimming hat it would be really helpful, because we can then split them into teams if we play water polo.

If you would like your child to attend the session on Sunday, please complete the online form.

As ever, do please come back to me if you have any questions

With best wishes

Jerry Gear
