Swimming Letter 4P Thursday 5th November 2020

Dear Parent/Guardian,

 

Swimming Lessons: KSA Swim School Change of day and time

Thursday 5th November 2020 – Thursday 17th December 2020

 

As you may be aware, in Year 4, pupils at Flax Hill have the opportunity to take part in swimming lessons. Mr Plume’s class will be taking part in swimming lessons this term. We have examined the COVID -19 risk assessments and information that KSA Swim school and QEMs have produced. We are confident that they are meeting all the appropriate COVID-19 regulations and requirements. The timetable for swimming is as follows:

 

  • Pupils will walk to QEMS at 1:20pm and return to school by 3:15pm   Please note they may not be back by the time the gate opens.

 

The Swimming Instructors have several rules that must be followed before they allow the children to enter the water. These rules are detailed below:

 

  • Boys will need to wear swimming trunks as they do not allow swimming shorts. Girls will need a one-piece costume, not a bikini. In addition, both boys and girls need to wear a swimming cap.
  • Children are only permitted to wear swimming goggles if they have written parental permission. If you require your child to wear goggles please send an appropriate note to their class teacher.
  • No earrings are permitted for swimming lessons. If your child cannot take their earrings out they are not allowed to enter the water. The Instructors will not allow the use of plasters or a swimming cap to cover the earrings.
  • Your child will also need verruca socks if he/she has a verruca. These can also be purchased from the poolside. Alternatively, they may wear an ordinary sock to save this expense.
  • The Instructors will also not allow children who suffer from asthma to enter the pool without their inhaler being present. If your child is not able to go swimming for medical reasons can you please send a note to their class teacher explaining this.

 

Please return the permission slip attached by Friday 16th October 2020. If you require any further clarification please contact the school via the office.

 

Yours sincerely,

Mrs M Booth

Head of School
