The Big Splash – one of the biggest sport participation campaigns ever – is calling for all school children and their families to get in the water ahead of the London 2012 Olympics. And we want your school to get involved!

The Big Splash is working with the BBC to promote swimming which means all kinds of promotion across television, radio and online, including many children's programmes such as Blue Peter.
