Swimming at Northway


Swimming is a key part of the National Curriculum for PE. At Northway, the children from Y3 to Y6 swim for half a term each, which on average equates for six weeks of swimming per year. The children are taken, by bus, to the Meadows Pool which is located next to Maghull Town Hall. 

They take part in a 30 minute lesson each week and are taught by a swimming instuctor and/or their class teacher. All children are assessed in swimming and receive certificates for their achievements.
