The teachers assess all pupils during the first and last two weeks of a term. This ensures the pupils are progressing well and that they are placed in correctly balanced classes to progress and also helps us to see whether we have any teaching issues.

Our teachers work from the same Seals assessment structure and awards scheme. We focus on technique during our assessment. Therefore a child who is swimming 10m of front paddle with thier arms staying in the water will be assessed differently from a child who can complete 10m swimming the first 3m as front crawl with their arms recovering over the water.

Once the assessments are complete they are given to the office and entered into the pool management system. If there is a change in assessment we may need to change your child's class time/teacher and these are emailled to the parents automatically.

We try to accomodate requests as much as possible if you would like your child to have a specific teacher please enter this in the notes section on your account's 'My Details' page. Please be aware it is not always possible to accomodate all requests when planning the class schedules.

Your child's class teacher may change each term according to the class schedule planning. The teachers all teach the same Seals lesson structure. We recognise that some children may become attached to one particular teacher and progress well with them, however it is also beneficial for the children to experience another teacher's teaching style during their time with us. 

If you have any complaints, questions or queries at all about our lessons or staff please telephone us as soon as possible 0845 680 9876 or 01223 813932. 

 You may speak to Ken Carstairs or Ali Fish.
