Water Safety Links

With the recent hot weather, and the holidays approaching, a nice swim at the beach or a pool would normally be something a lot of the Dalry Primary family would be enjoying, especially as these activities are allowed under current guidelines.

But with no lifeguards on duty, pools closed and no recent swimming lessons there are a lot more risks to where and how children (and grown ups) are going swimming.

Here are some links to learn about water safety while you are at home:


Click here to access lots and lots of information about all aspects of water safety on the website of The Royal Lifesaving Society


The RNLI has a range of fun interactive learning resources if you click here.

They have resources aimed a schools that you could choose to use at home. These are split by age group.

RNLI 3-7 year olds

RNLI 7-11 year olds

RNLI 11-14 Year olds


Dalry Primary is very near to the Union Canal, and quite near the Water of Leith, so canal water and river safety is very important. The Canal and River Trust have lots of child friendly activites and resources available by clicking this link


Lastly this Royal Society for Prevention of Accidents quiz is aimed at older children but the danger and warning signs in it are ones worth discussing even with younger children.


Have fun and be safe!
