Lessons will be held in the swimming pool at the Wentworth Leisure Centre in Hexham.  The children will travel to and from the lessons by coach.

Equipment required

Your child will need:

-        Swimming/PE bag (these can be purchased from the school office at a cost of £3.60 – cheque payable to Corbridge Church of England School Fund)

-        an appropriate swimming costume i.e. one piece swimming costume or swimming trunks (two piece costumes/baggy shorts are not suitable)

-        a towel

-        long hair must be tied back

-        no jewellery/watches etc should be worn to school when children are due to attend a swimming lesson

Cost – spring term 2016

To cover transport costs, we require a contribution of £25.00 per child (£2.50 per week).  This can either be paid in one lump sum or paid each Monday morning.  Cheques should be made payable to NCC - please write ‘swimming’ and your child’s name on the back of the cheque.  If you are paying with cash, please put money in an envelope clearly marked with your child’s name and ‘swimming’.

We will write to you in March to request payment for the summer term.
