As you are aware, we are extremely fortunate to have our own swimming pool on the site at Bow Community Primary School.
This enables the children to receive a swimming lesson each week during the last half-term of the school year. Our aim is that every child, who leaves the school, will be able to swim 25 metres.
We operate a coloured hat assessment system, so that the lifeguards can see at a glance who is a swimmer and who is a non-swimmer:
Red Hats: Beginners and / or Nervous Swimmers
Yellow Hats: Confident in the deepest water, able to swim two lengths, tread water for 30 seconds and go underwater.
Blue Hats: Able to complete 4 lengths or more, demonstrating 2 strokes
