All Children in Class 4 (years 5 and 6) have a weekly swimming lesson at Glossop Swimming Pool on Thursday mornings.

As this is a mixed age class the children get two years of school swimming which is a fantastic opportunity for them to reach a good standard and is particularly beneficial to those children who start the sessions as non-swimmers.

Children are assessed at the start of the year and grouped according to ability, floatation aids are provided for non-swimmers where necessary.

Swimming Rules

Long hair must be tied back and earrings removed.

Girls must wear one piece swimming costumes - no bikinis.

Boy's swimming shorts must be above the knee, we recommend trunks rather than shorts as they are much easier to swim in.
