Our early stages are the framework of beginning to swim. They perfectly lead on from our Ducklings stages but are also suitable for complete beginners.
These stages have been carefully developed to ensure accuracy of technique is learnt coupled with fun and safety in the pool.
All the stages follow the Swim England Teaching Plan.
The Learn to Swim Stage 1-7 Awards are divided into progressive stages. They make up the core, national syllabus of learning to swim for primary school aged children.
They are designed to reward your child for their development of the essential aquatic skills they need to be confident, competent and safe in the water.
Each of the Learn to Swim Stage 1-7 Awards has a list of clear outcomes that need to be completed in order to gain each Award.
Once your child has successfully completed their stage they will be given a transfer and badge slip to take to reception and be moved up to the next stage.
