Swimming, Water Based Learning and Hydrotherapy
At Carlton Digby School, pupils are able to access off-site swimming at Calverton Leisure Centre, on-site water based learning in our hydrotherapy pool or hydrotherapy ran by Physiotherapists. Which sessions are attended is based on the needs of the individual child.
We use Nottinghamshire County Council School's Swimming for our off-site sessions. For 2019 - 2020 this will be Tuesday afternoons from 21st April 2020 - 21st July 2020 (13 weeks).
On-site sessions are led by staff who have been trained in National Curriculum Training Programme (NCTP) by School's Swimming. Two staff per session are trained in Aquatic Therapy Shallow Pool Rescue Award (ATSPRA). Water based learning will be ran on a rota across the appropriate classes.
NHS Physiotherapists lead hydrotherapy sessions, supported by two ATSPRA trained school staff.
