Swimming Lessons Years 1, 2 & 3

Dear Parents

Swimming 2019 - Years: Y1,Y2 & Y3


This year, swimming lessons have been arranged, to commence after Christmas, for all children from Year 3 down. Lessons will take place at GL1 Leisure Centre in Gloucester, for 11 weeks, starting on Wednesday 16th January 2019. We will travel by George Young coach, leaving school at 12.15pm and returning by approximately 2.15pm. Please note we will not be swimming on 20th February 2019.


Swimming is not only a fun activity but also an important life skill and its value is reflected in its status as a National Curriculum requirement. By the end of Year 6 all pupils should be able to:


  • pace themselves in floating and swimming challenges related to speed, distance and personal survival
  • swim unaided for a sustained period of time and distance of at least 25m
  • use recognised arm and leg actions, lying on their front and back
  • use a range of recognised strokes and personal survival skills (for example, front crawl, back crawl, breaststroke, sculling, floating and surface diving).


The cost, including transport and tuition, will be £48.50 for the 11 lessons (£4.75 per session if paid weekly). Payment to be made as a lump sum via ParentPay Alternatively you may pay weekly or a lump sum by cheque or cash to the school office. Please make any cheques payable to Tibberton School Fund.

We need to ask for a voluntary contribution to help fund this trip – if you have any problems with this please contact the school office or the Head Teacher.


We will be calling on parents to assist with swimming lessons, either in the changing room or in the pool. If you would like to be involved with this please let school know. We will be compiling a rota for this closer to the time.


Please note that pupils will be allowed to wear swimming goggles but only as long as they can put them on themselves and they are already adjusted to fit the child before they arrive.


Please complete and return the form overleaf by the end of this term.


If any parent requires a reminder of their login details for ParentPay please ask at the school office.


Yours sincerely




Mrs A Horniman

Head Teacher
