Swimming

In accordance with the National Curriculum, children in Year 3 and Year 4 participate in a ten week swimming programme at Westcroft Leisure Centre.

Lessons are designed to promote water safety, competence in the water and stroke technique.  Children are also given the opportunity to represent Barrow Hedges at the Primary School Swimming Gala.
