We are extremely fortunate at Walton le Dale Primary School to own a swimming pool. The pool measures 15 metres by 6 metres with a depth of 1 metre. It's the perfect depth and size for children from 3 years old to learn and develop their proficiency and fitness. Lessons are carried out by our own certified coach, Justin Daubney.
All our swimming courses are fully booked for November and December. If you would like to register your interest in booking swimming lessons in 2022 please email email@example.com and we will add your child to the waiting list.
**Exciting update - We are commencing a significant redevelopment of the swimming pool in January 2022. The pool will be closed during the development works, but when we reopen in Spring we will be offering an increased number of lessons over additional days, and we hope to be able to accommodate all children on the waiting list as well as our existing swimmers**
We currently offer weekly lessons to our Reception children, Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3 children as part of their physical education within the school day. They are all taught by our swimming instructor, Justin Daubney.
These sessions take place on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays within the school day. We ask that all parents with children who swim support the school by making a donation of £6 per half term. This contribution makes a huge difference to helping our school maintain this facility properly.
All children must wear a swimming hat and swimming trunks or costume. Children are not permitted to swim with loose fitting/long beach shorts or any type of jewellery.
