Cornwall primary school wins £50 to spend on swimming equipment

Swimming equipment. Floats and aids. Cornwall primary school wins £50 voucher.

St Breock Primary School in Cornwall was awarded a £50 voucher to spend on school swimming equipment after completing the ASA School Swimming Charter feedback survey.

The ASA recently sent out a survey to all schools signed up to the School Swimming Charter to discover how they were getting on with our School Swimming Charter resources, advice and guidance.

Swimming Equipment Prize Draw

All of the respondents who responded to the survey by the deadline on the 30 September were entered into a prize draw and one school was picked at random to win £50 worth of vouchers to spend on school swimming equipment and accessories.

Sports Development Specialist at St Breock’s, James Ross, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have won the £50 voucher to spend on our school swimming equipment, and will be using it to enhance swimming lessons in Reception and Year 1 through the use of swimming aids.

“We signed up for the School Swimming Charter at the end of last year and have since been using it to help our teachers deliver swimming sessions with our pupils. While we were already delivering swimming previously, the ASA School Swimming Charter has helped us develop this further.

“The digital resources are very useful to save having paper lesson plans on poolside and I feel that the ASA keeps us up to date with new developments and refresher information through the School Charter Newsletter.”

School Swimming Charter

In November the School Swimming Charter will be celebrating its first year anniversary, and during the past year 485 schools have signed up and are making use of the resources and guidance from the ASA.

They are also receiving regular updates to the latest changes to school swimming via the School Swimming Charter Newsletter.
