Primary School - Swimming Provision

Partner: St Matthew's CofE Primary School, , Surbiton
Partner type: Maintained School
Project category: Sporting Partnerships

At Shrewsbury House we have recently refurbished our School swimming pool as part of our ongoing development programme 'building better.' Having modernised this facility we are keen that it is used not only by our own boys but also by the wider community. St Matthew's Church of England Primary School is one of our local state primary schools and we want them to be able to use the pool to develop their children's swimming skills and confidence in the water.

Aims of the project

The aims of the project are to enable members of our wider community to make use of the sports facilities that we have at Shrewsbury House. The children from St Matthew's will benefit from the use of our pool and also swimming provision that we provide.

Background and goals

This is quite a recent development as we look to share our sports facilities and sports coaching expertise with the wide community. The newly refurbished swimming pool was re-opened earlier this term.

Resources

The swimming pool, associated changing facilities and our provision of a swimming coach make this project viable. St Matthew's will be using the pool on a weekly basis.

Pupil involvement

St Matthew's will be rotating the different year groups that have access to the pool. They will be bringning Years 4-6 to Shrewsbury House on a rotational basis.

Frequency and duration

The swimming sessions will take place on a weekly basis and will continue into next academic year.
