Our swimming programme follows the successful models used in Australia and America. It is based on a logical, seven level progression that helps swimmers develop their water safety, survival and swimming skills. It is designed to give participants a positive learning experience.
In addition to the weekly swimming lessons in school, children have the chance to access further swimming lessons via our extra-curricular-activities programme.
Our school swimming teachers and ECA coaches work closely together to ensure that lessons are differentiated to meet the needs of different students. Skills progression is carefully monitored and children are supported to move through the levels at their own pace. Each child has a tracking sheet to record their progress at each level, with certificates being issued on completion of each level. This tracking sheet follows each child in both their school swimming lessons and any ECA swimming lessons they may take here at NIS.
