Swimming challenges for our Primary students

This term sees the start of swimming lessons for some of our students. It is a worrying fact that drowning is the third most common cause of accidental death in children and at London Academy we recognise the importance of water safety. Swimming is a life skill that not only enables children to have fun with friends and family but also ensures they know what to do if someone gets into trouble. Or a strong current takes a friend away from the edge. Or you fall in when running by a river.

Swimming is also incredibly good for physical and mental health and our students have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to learn how to swim and save lives.
