Staying safe near canals and rivers

Our school name reflects the geographical proximity of our learning community to the River Ouse. The river flows around the edge of Poppleton and is a wonderful feature of our village and York.  Although the River Ouse looks calm and welcoming, it is a fast flowing river, with a tendency to flood in wet seasons. Because of this, it is important that our pupils learn about the dangers of rivers, canals and other bodies of water and that they learn to swim to promote their safety. This knowledge is embedded in our BOLD Curriculum and pupils are reminded of the risks in school.
