Swimming at Moat Hall

Every child should leave primary school with the skills to keep themselves safe whilst enjoying swimming with friends and family. At Moat Hall we have the use of the neighbouring High School's swimming pool so that we can safely walk the children across to their lessons. Each child in Year 1 - 6 will have the opportunity to attend a block of swimming lessons which end in a fun swim session. We have our own qualified instructors and lifeguards who accompany the children, and we also provide swimming aids if required.

The intention is to ensure that every child who leaves us in year 6 will be able to perform safe self-rescue, swim competently and confidently over a distance of at lease 25 metres and be able to use a range of strokes effectively. We hope that also have fun!
