What teach­ers are tweet­ing about swim­ming

TES (Times Education Supplement) - - INSIGHT -

Car­o­line Lans­down: “Learn­ing to swim could save their life – a def­i­nite pri­or­ity.”

Catherine Hewitt: “Trans­port – less about fi­nan­cial cost, more about time spent trav­el­ling (plus chang­ing palaver) for very lit­tle time ac­tu­ally learn­ing to swim.” Mr Wilkes PE: “We are cur­rently try­ing to per­suade our head to get a pool as part of our 3.1mil grant…do peo­ple think it’s worth it?”

Lacey: “It should be manda­tory from Year 1 for every child to learn to swim and about water safety.”

Pain­swick­crick­et­info: “We do plenty but some chil­dren can’t reach the re­quired level, it has to be prac­tised reg­u­larly by go­ing out of school, isn’t enough time.”

He­len Hughes: “We are re­ally lucky to be able to walk there at least it gives the chil­dren a bit more ex­er­cise!”
