Cheltenham and North Tewkesbury School Sport Network is working untitledwith Leisure @ Cheltenham to enhance school swimming.
Liaising with local Primary school Head teachers, there will be a  series of new initiatives and opportunities  in response to an identified need to enhance the teaching and learning  and overall pupil experience within school swimming sessions. Click on the various links for more information from the ASA:- New Guidance Pack, School Profile sheet, 2 Hr Introduction to School Swimming course, ASA 1 day Module 1 School Teachers course.

These new initiatives and opportunities  will be aligned to ASA's information and guidance: Primary School Learn to Swim Guide, School Swimming Learn to Swim Safety Guide.  Click here / link needed to attachments.

The 2013 School Swimming Census 'Learning the Lesson: The Future of School Swimming' .  Click here - The School Swimming Census was the largest ever investigation into school swimming where more than 3,500 schools were asked how many of their Key Stage 2 children have reached national curriculum swimming requirements. This report is about a belief – a vision – that every child has the right and opportunity to learn to swim to help achieve a fitter, healthier and perhaps above all a safer generation of young people. It is about mapping – on an unprecedented scale - the reality of school swimming in 2013 and using that insight to learn lessons and help to safeguard its future. But this report is also about signposting solutions to try and relieve some of those pressures and highlighting where innovation, collaboration, determination and support can overcome them. Equally, there is inspiration to be found in this report that proves how school swimming can have a bright and vital future in our children's lives. Indeed, the many initiatives detailed within this report are designed to alleviate the all too real pressures parents and schools can face when trying to keep school swimming a priority and provide guidance and support wherever possible.
