•Please note that boys and girls do swim together and so we do allow for students to wear a t-shirt over their swimming kit if preferred for modesty/confidence purposes. However, the t-shirt must not be too loose.

•Wet suits are permitted for those who need to wear them but must be thin to prevent overheating.

•If your child requires any further protective wear such as Swim Pants or Swim Nappies these must be provided by the family.

LA Transport

Home to School Transport is provided by the Local Authority in many cases.  To receive this assistance, families need to complete the relevant form - see below. Decisions made regarding the allocation of School Transport relate to the distance travelled and the nature of your child's SEND.

 Bus routes, Drivers and Escorts may change over the year, but every effort is made to give you and your child a consistent service.

 Pick-up details for your child are usually shared with you in August.
