Swimming Champions Back Free Swimming Lessons For Children In Ashington
Olympic champion Duncan Goodhew and Great Britain junior swimmers Jess Thielmann and Phoebe Lenderyou will join Ashington school children to mark the return of the British Gas Pools 4 schools initiative at Ashington High School.
SEaB Energy cleans up at the Resource Revolution AwardsThe scheme which is supported by British Gas and Speedo brings an innovative portable pool to the area to teach more than 1,000 children to swim for free. This will be the third time the pool has visited the site where more than 1,300 children have previously been taught to swim. The Pools 4 Schools project brings swimming right to the heart of areas that really need it such as in Ashington where limited capacity has caused children to miss out on learning this vital life saving skill.

ASA Conducts Vital Survey Into Current Status Of School Swimming
One in five children in the UK leave primary school unable to swim and this figure rises to four out of five in some communities with limited pool access. With drowning being the third most common cause of accidental death in children in the UK it is crucial that the number of children leaving school unable to swim is tackled. It is hoped that the temporary pool at Ashington High School will help to combat this and ensure children achieve the National Curriculum target of learning to swim 25m unaided by the time they leave primary school.
