Swimming lesson terms and conditions

Teaching policies, procedures and parental responsibilities

All of our swim teachers are qualified to STA or ASA level 2, have the relevant DBS checks and lifeguarding qualification before they are allowed to teach.

Swimming teachers will take responsibility for pupils during their swimming lessons, but and parents/guardians are required to remain nearby in the designated viewing gallery so that if required the parent/guardian can deal with toilet breaks or any behavioural issues. Staff will not take pupils to the toilet.

Parents/guardians must remain on the premises whilst the pupil is attending their swimming lessons. This is imperative in case of the unlikely event of a medical emergency, building evacuation or other emergency situation. Pupils must be collected promptly at the end of the lesson.

Parents/guardians must never distract the teacher during a lesson and should direct all communication through the duty manager. Parents/guardians should not to speak with a teacher during the period that lessons are in progress as it is dangerous and will distract the teacher from the supervision of the pupils in their lesson.

Pupils can be refused entry to the lesson if they are more than 10 minutes late for a class, as it disrupts the lesson for the other pupils.
