Following on from the updated Government directive on school closures in the Leicester and Leicestershire area, Highcliffe is now closed from Tuesday 30th June to all students except children of key workers who have registered for a place.
We are incredibly lucky here at Highcliffe to have our very own swimming pool on site. All children in years 1,3 and 5 swim for alternate half terms throughout the whole school year. In the summer term, children in Foundation Stage begin their swimming journey with water confidence sessions so that they are ready to begin their lessons in Year 1. Children in Year 6 who have not met the government benchmark of swimming 25m by the end of Year 5, have extra ‘top up’ swimming lessons in the summer term to ensure that they leave Highcliffe with water confidence and a love of swimming!
