The Glasgow Swim School team are a swim team of 8 PE teachers, working with pupils in P5, P6 and P7 to develop health and wellbeing through swimming.
We understand the importance of swimming for all pupils; one of our PE teachers specifically providing support for pupils with additional support needs.
The program involves an invaluable experience for pupils, developing:-
- water confidence– developing confidence and self esteem
- water safety– developing the understanding that swimming is a life-long skill
- stroke technique– developing motor skills, coordination and fluency
- physical fitness– developing stamina, core stability and strength
We provide an in-depth Physical Education CfE swimming assessment sharing pupils’ progress with schools and parents.
As part of the swimming programme pupils are given the opportunity to enjoy the experience of competing at our annual swimming festival at Tollcross International Swimming Centre. It is always well attended and swimmers that have gained success at national level are invited along to support the pupils.
In addition to using Glasgow Secondary School pools, we also work with our partners in Glasgow life, using the swimming pools across the city to teach the swimming lessons. Glasgow life also provides future swimming development for pupils, giving them the opportunity to continue with swimming out of school at Glasgow life swimming clubs.
