Children have become fitter and healthier since attending the clubs. 90% of children stated they feel their cooperation, teamwork and relationships/ friendships with others have improved.

Purchasing the swimming charter to support the teaching and assessment of swimming

Enabled staff to have control over the teaching and learning of swimming, targets for all pupils and the progress of all children.
