During stages 1-3 of the learn to swim programme, our teachers are water based.
This means that our teachers are in the pool with the swimmers allowing for that extra support and confidence building. This method of teaching allows participants to become comfortable in the water which sets a foundation ready for swimmers to gain strength for swimming distances and learn techniques.
The learning objectives for stages 1-3 of the Swim England Learn to Swim programme are divided into progressive stages. They form part of the core, national learning objectives for nursery and primary school aged children, which have been designed to teach learners the basics of swimming and water safety.
Each of the Learn to Swim stages displays a clear list of learning outcomes that need to be achieved in order to complete the stage. Take a look below for a more detailed breakdown of each stage and which would be most suited to your child.
