Inter School PE Competitons

Timetable for Sports Competitions and Events 2017-18


School swimming takes place weekly during the Spring terms and takes place at the Tewkesbury School.

Children swim from Y1 to Y5, for half hour lessons, in ability groups by the pool’s qualified instructors.  They follow the ASA’s Learn to Swim Pathway and work towards badges and certificates as part of this.

ASA Awards scheme

The ASA Learn to Swim Awards 1-7 are divided into progressive stages. They make up the core, national syllabus of learning to swim for primary school aged children.
They are designed to reward your child for their development of the essential aquatic skills they need to be confident, competent and safe in the water.
Each of the ASA Learn to Swim Awards 1-7 stages has a list of clear outcomes that need to be completed in order to gain each award.
