Swimming is not only a healthy activity, but also acts as an essential life-skill.
Swimming and water safety are statutory activities at Key Stage 2. Swimming is also one of nine workstrands within the national PE, School Sport and Club Links strategy.
We use the Maple Ridge School Swimming Pool in term time when the air temperature is warm enough.
The pool is hired out to other local schools during the holidays.
Each year some of our year 5 & 6 children take part in the special schools' swimming gala at Basingstoke Aquadrome, representing the school with enthusiasm in the freestyle and breastroke heats.
