Swimming

At St. Felix, pupils currently receive two terms of swimming instruction. This is an integral part of the PE Curriculum and so the school funds this activity.

Pupils currently receive swimming instruction in the Summer Term of Year 4 and the Autumn Term of Year 5. This gives two consecutive terms of instruction, with the opportunity for parents and carers to use the summer holiday for any further instruction, as desired. During the pandemic this had been suspended. Year 5 have attended swimming Autumn 2021 and Year 6 will be attending swimming Summer 2022
