Uplands, and Brimble Hill Special Schools have a whole school swimming policy. From year 1 we aim to give every student a regular swim slot.
Initially all students use the MAU Hydrotherapy pool. Those who are able to access it will transfer to Dorcan Pool, normally this is in year 5. Post 16 students focus on healthy living & leisure attending either Highworth Rec or the public fun disabilities session at the Oasis Leisure Centre.
We aim to give all students a positive experience in the pool, & find individual progress boosts their self esteem. Swimming is an activity the whole family can participate in as many of our students find they can join in with their peers on an even footing.
