It is exciting to see your child progress through the levels and become an accomplished swimmer, it is also important to ensure that your child is a safe swimmer and has the skills to save themselves in an emergency.
Staff will keep your child at a level until they can perform skills repeatedly on more than one occasion, this shows true mastery of the skill. You may also observe staff asking students to demonstrate a skill to other class members; this is an effective teaching strategy for both the teaching child and the observing child.
Staff want to develop confident swimmers with a good knowledge of water safety. Every class will have a water safety activity or a whole week of water safety activities at the end of term.
