Buckinghamshire Council commissioned the Bucks School Swimming Partnership (BSSP) to provide school swimming information, advice, and guidance to Buckinghamshire schools on safe practices in swimming, to keep everyone involved in school swimming safe.
Buckinghamshire Council produces a Safe Practice in School Swimming Policy and Guidance which sets out policies and provides guidance and advice on safe practice in school swimming, whether at a school pool, hydrotherapy pool, public pool, or during school visits. Their BSSP Website provides national and local guidance; links to partner and national organisations; School Swimming Award criteria and certificates, along with termly newsletters, etc.
The BSSP provides essential school swimming teaching and swimming safety training and qualifications, along with bespoke training to enable school staff to safely support and undertake school swimming as per the policy.
Working in partnership will ensure a consistent joined-up approach in the planning and delivery of safe, high-quality school swimming lessons.
