Bayards Hill Primary School

In this section...


Swimming is part of the Ks2 National Curriculum, but is also a fun way to exercise and stay healthy and an important life skill.

At Bayards Hill classes in year 3, 4 and 5 all receive a free hours swimming lesson once a fortnight during the Autumn and Spring terms.

During the summer term year 2 will enjoy a water confidence course to help prepare them for year 3.

We are very privileged to be able to make the most of the Barton Leisure Centre facilities next door to our school.

Please support us by ensuring that your child brings their swimming kit to school on the correct day.

Swimming kit includes;

  • A swimming costume or shorts
  • A towel
  • A swimming hat (without this the swimming pool may not allow your child to enter the water)
  • Goggles (optional)

Children in year 5 who wish to bring anti-perspirant deodorants for after their swimming session should be aware that aerosol products are not allowed to be used in the changing rooms due to the risk to asthmatic pupils. Please use roll-on products or other suitable alternatives.
