This academic year we have been allocated £7,634 with an additional carry forward from last year. This has allowed us to prioritise the following developments.
The focus in our school is develop our students confidence and proficiency given that most of our students have high anxiety around water. We focus on strokes that keep them safe rather than developing a range of strokes. We currently do not have any students who are at the stage to progress onto self rescue techniques in the water, however we work with parents to encourage them to expose their children to swimming lessons out of school.

Life guard training and resources
Most students across the school have accessed a 6 week swimming program developing physical wellbeing as well as improved confidence in the water. A number of ARC/SLD students have also
had regular opportunities to access swimming which impacts on physical development and provides a sensory opportunity that the students all enjoy.
We are fortunate to use our own lifeguards as this means they know the students and can support if they are uncertain. This training is renewed regularly.
