The majority of our current year 6 cohort experience learning in water.  For most, this involves accessing the school’s hydrotherapy pool where they engage in personalised programmes to promote strength, flexibility and relaxation whilst also working on communication and interaction skills. Some pupils access swimming lessons at the public swimming baths where they work on a range of early swimming and water confidence skills.  However, due to our pupils’ physical and learning needs it is not appropriate to teach the swimming skills identified in guidelines for publishing information about year 6 swimming.
