We have small classes of 5 or 6 pupils with 1 instructor in the water with them, a maximum of 2 classes run side by side so we never have more than 12 pupils in the water at any one time.
Parents are not permitted on poolside but can watch their children on a large TV’s in Reception area where refreshments are on sale and with ample seating you can watch your child’s progress in comfort.
We run our lessons in blocks of 4 weeks, these are paid in advance and subject to our terms and conditions on your registration form when you sign up.
Since April 2016 our swimming lessons have successfully followed a programme of 8 awards developed by the STA to meet the standards of the national curriculum in addition to this programme we run :
Transition Classes for Parent and Toddler to prepare for Independent Lessons (All with Parents in the water)
Awards 1 & 2 – from 3.5 yrs upwards this class concentrates on building water confidence and floating skills that will underpin future swim teaching.
Awards 3 – 8 then take the learner through the 4 strokes whilst at the same time teaching a variety of additional water safety and life saving skills which is so important when staying safe in and around water.
The final progression is where children will be able to work towards a series of distance awards and their interest maintained by being taught additional skills such as CPR , Snorkelling and basic water rescue techniques.
