4 Years Plus Beginner 1


Older children who do not need their parent to accompany them in the water will learn core swimming techniques and survival skills.

Classes are kept very small, under normal circumstances we teach up to 5 children in a Beginner group and up to 6 in higher stages. For the Spring term 2022 we have reduced the numbers i Valence School to 3.

We follow Swim England Learn to Swim Framework

In this Beginner Level 1 we work towards Swim England Stage 1 Award
