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. This is due to take place in the summer term.
On-site water based learning 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.
Please see the documents below for guidance.
On site water based learning or hydrotherapy is not currently takikng place due to the close contact nature of the activity. This will resume as soon as we are able to safely do so.
