Furze Platt Junior School took the decision to commission Let’s Dive In! (LDI) to deliver their school swimming programme, which is summer term sessions for all year 3 pupils as well as year 6 Key Stage 2 assessments.
Claire’s Court Girls School, for the first time provided community access to their pool on College Avenue campus for FPJS programme.
Pupils walked to the pool for their lessons getting in their Daily Mile. LDI staff delivered the Swim England School Swimming Charter programme which includes a session on water safety and how to self rescue.
LDI team were delighted with all the pupils progress. 20 pupils who couldn’t swim at the beginning of the term could now travel in the water. 1:1 teaching support was also provided to a pupil with physical disabilities to ensure the whole year group could take part in the sessions.
Year 6 pupils benefited from a separate session which coincided with RLSS Drowning Prevention week to help raise awareness of open water.
The overall winners of the award, Kirk Ella primary have their own school pool and are already recognised by Swim England and Youth Sport Trust as an example of best practice for swimming in the Country.
We couldn’t be more delighted with this award for FPJS and look forward to delivering their swimming programme next Summer term.

Based in part on insight developed by Women in Sport, This Girl Can aims to break down the barriers that prevent women and girls from participating in sport and physical activity.
One of the main barriers that contributes to the 1.9 million gender gap in participation is a fear among women of judgement when taking part in sport and physical activity.
This Girl Can is helping to combat these fears by highlighting and championing real, normal women getting involved in sport
At Let’s Dive In, we want to ensure that women and girls are encouraged to take part and enjoy their swimming and will continue to help level the playing field. Take a look below to links at resources for women and girls and if you need to speak to somebody, get in touch
