Children at Whaplode Church of England Primary School took the plunge and can now swim with confidence.

All year 6 pupils at the school have gained their 25 metre swimming certificates.

It comes after a national survey by the Amateur Swimming Association showing there has been positive progress made in the number of children now leaving schools able to swim 25 metres unaided.

A school spokesperson said: “This 100 per cent pass rate has exceeded the school’s statistics and demonstrated its commitment to this valuable life skill.”
