From September 2023, all children will access swimming lessons in Years 4 and 5, at New Mills Leisure Centre, following the Derbyshire County Council Swimming Scheme. Swimming sessions will be every Wednesday morning, from 20th September. The aim is that our children work towards and meet the National Curriculum expectations by the time they leave us in Year 6. We also offer a swimming booster group in Year 6, to give those children who need that extra time to achieve the expected standard during the autumn term, these children will join the Year 4 and 5 group.

Active 60 minutes! 

Evidence shows that children and young people who are more active have more confidence, higher self-esteem, less anxiety and stress and better social skills – attributes that can help them deal with the challenges they face in daily life. Positive attitudes towards physical activity have also been associated with children being happier.

The UK Chief Medical Officers recommend that children do at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity every day.

At Whaley Bridge Primary School, there are many ways that we encourage our children to be more active, this includes: our daily move sessions, active learning tasks, encouraging children to walk, cycle or scoot to school, extra curricular activities and many more!
