Pre-Prep children have started working towards Swimming Badges in their curriculum lessons, with the aim being to award badges at the end of each term. The criteria are as per the National Plan for Teaching Swimming (NPTS), with Stage 1 starting with ‘enter the water safely’ and Stage 7 ending with completing an obstacle course with feet off the bottom throughout and treading water using egg beater action for 30 seconds!

Could you please let Mrs Swadling know if your child has already received badges for any stages of the National Plan Awards?
