206 schools across Leeds use council facilities for their swimming provision!
For many children, particularly those living in more deprived areas, school may be the only opportunity they will have to learn how to swim and be safe in and around the water. Despite being on the national curriculum, around one in five children leave primary school unable to swim.
It is incredibly important that children do not miss out on School Swimming and Water Safety lessons as a result of Covid-19.
Can swimming lessons resume?
The latest government update has stated swimming pools can open for educational purposes and Swim England has produced a number of documents to support returning to pools.Spend time talking to your provider to find out what changes have been put in place so you are able to relay these to your children to ensure they are prepared for their return to swimming lessons.
You will have received the good news that Active Leeds school swimming can recommence in the near future. Please use documents below to support your return.
