In April 2022 Councillors made a commitment to offer a Primary 5 curricular swimming programme on an annual basis starting in academic year 22/23 and leading up to and then moving into the opening of the new Wellbeing Hub.  Officers leapt into action from that point and over the next 12 months started a programme that included the recruitment and training of staff, the development of a curricular swimming syllabus and the creation of a swimming programme utilising pool time at both The Peak, Stirling and Dollar Academy.  Thanks to partnerships with the two venues, Scottish Swimming and Falkirk Council all of this was achieved in this short space of time and from April to June 2023 over 540 children took part in the programme delivered by their Primary PE teachers, swimming teachers, lifeguards and other support staff.  The programme has been a huge success and has created the template that will be replicated in the summer term 2024 for the next group of Primary 5 children.
The programme has been fully reviewed and evaluated and the full report can be seen here
