In classes where there are very young learners or very inexperienced learners the class size may be smaller than 8, and where there are more than 4 learners there will be an additional teacher or an assistant to offer additional support.

Teachers of our most inexperienced learners teach alongside assistants from within the pool and will give learners physical support where appropriate and in the best interests of safety. During the COVID 19 restrictions teachers and Assistants will teach from poolside as detailed in the guidance https://www.sta.co.uk/news/2020/05/20/swim-school-re-opening-guidance/

Learners will be regularly assessed and when appropriate recommended for a higher level class. Whilst we aim to move a learner within their time slot it may be necessary to consider a change of time to achieve the most appropriate level class.
