Swim school news for 2021/2022

The swim team would like to wish all our swimmers and their families a very Merry Christmas and let you know that the final week of swimming lessons will be week commencing Monday 13th December 2021. We then have a two week break and lessons will re start on Monday 3rd January 2022.

We have some exciting news for the Swim School as GoLearn is coming into play from 3rd January.

All awards and attendance will be recorded electronically and updated to the system automatically. GoLearn will give us the ability to communicate with parents/carers and allows for greater ease in class management and availability. There is a parent portal which we hope to get up and running after February half term which will enable parents/carers to monitor their child’s progress. All your child’s records will be available to view so that you can see what they need to practice during their free public swim sessions to enable them to progress.  You will also receive all communications from the child’s swimming teacher regarding badges and moving etc through this portal where you will be able to self serve on a first come first served basis.

In order for this to be set up we need to have a correct and up to date email address for you on the system so if you could please call past reception at some point in the new year to update this we can then send out the parent portal invitations so that profiles can be created. Further information on the parent portal will be sent out in the new year.

Finally a short message on swim hats, please could you ensure that your child wears the correct colour swim hat for their stage. This is both for hygiene reasons but also and more importantly for safety. Each colour hat corresponds to a different stage and means that we can see at a glance where they should be swimming and at what level, meaning that they wont end up out of their depth by accident. We have been handing these out for a few weeks now at reception and also from the teachers on pool side. If you have not been and collected one/been given one please could you collect one from reception on your next visit.
