Updates for Parents & Carers

Dear Parents & Carers of Children in KS2,

Please find some links to the Canal and River Trust Website, with the weather brightening up we would like to remind the children about water safety. We will order some leaflets to give to those children attending school for the remainder of the summer term.

Kind regards

About Drowning Prevention Week


Drowning Prevention Week was established 7 years ago by the Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS). Its aim is to educate individuals and families, to give them the skills and knowledge to take charge of their own decisions and enjoy water safely.

This year it is more important than ever. The impact of COVID-19 is far-reaching and has resulted in reduced lifeguard services and supervised venues at a critical time of year

About Drowning Prevention Week


Bringing the magic of our waterways to you!


Our towpaths are open for you to exercise and to take your learning outdoors, closer to nature. We want you to enjoy your local canal or river, but please follow the government’s advice on social distancing at all times. Keep your distance from both other people and moored boats, where people may be living aboard and could be self-isolating or shielding.

Each themed ‘bundle’ contains activities that encourage children to watch, read, do, play and create as they learn about our canals and rivers from home. They include:
