Our aim is that all our children will be safe and confident in the water. This will enable them to access the exercise and leisure opportunities of our local lakes. The Wordsworth Hotel is available to us for swimming weekly, and we take the juniors who need swimming lessons, in small groups. We continue this until individuals can competently swim 200metres. All juniors receive comprehensive water safety training in the pool. We also run open water safety sessions, and build to open water swimming ‘challenges’. These are pure joy. Annually we run a triathlon for all our juniors, using local pool, footpaths and large circuit track. It’s great fun, and the children love improving on their personal times as they move up through the juniors.
