This week the LEAP Van returned to school. Y6 had the opportunity to meet their 'friends' for the last time as they learnt about making right choices, how to recognise the symptoms of stress, ways to become more resilient to stress and finally how to stand up to peer pressure. All great life-skills to take into the next stage of their lives!

Swim Safety Week

This is a big safety component to our swimming programme which happens in the Summer Term, where we introduce the students to what it feels like to be fully clothed when swimming. The children will also experience basic life saving techniques should they fall into a body of water.

The programme is designed to allow the students to experience how their swimming ability may change when in water with heavier clothes on. For the students to experience the change in the way they float, how much more tired they become, and survival techniques to use IF they were to be in water fully clothed, such as falling off a boat, being caught in a flash flood, accidentally falling into a pool etc.


The students need to bring in the following clothes IN ADDITION to their usual swim kit:

Y6: light coloured tracksuit/pyjama bottoms and white long sleeved T-shirt.


Only white or light coloured clothing will be permitted in the pool as dark colours react with the chlorine.

AT ALL TIMES THEY WILL BE UNDER STRICT SUPERVISION THE AQUAKIDZ EXPERIENCED AND FULLY ACCREDITED TEACHERS.
