Swimming in Bournemouth Park Academy forms part of the P.E. Curriculum from Year 2 to Year 6.
Swimming lessons take place every week at Garon Tennis and Leisure Centre, Southend, and last 30 minutes. Children will have ten scheduled lessons this academic year. Please see the Swimming Timetable below for exact dates for each year group.
Children are transported to swimming by the school mini bus and are accompanied by members of staff within that year group.
We aim to make swimming an enjoyable and challenging physical experience for the children increasing their water confidence. All children are encouraged to swim regardless of ability or disability. The lessons will be given by a qualified swimming instructor from Garon.
