Children in Rush Green are taught to swim during years 5 and 6. Lessons are taken by specialist swimming instructors at the Becontree Heath Leisure Centre - a purpose-built pool which was used to host training sessions for Olympic athletes in 2012. Children are transported to the pool by coach. There is no cost to the parents for this provision.
Children are taught and assessed using the 'Swim England Learn to Swim' syllabus. Further information about the curriculum content can be found here: http://www.swimming.org/learntoswim/asa-learn-to-swim-awards-1-7/
|At the end of 2017/18, 77 year 6 children left the school able to swim 25 metres!|
