Inclusive Swimming #SeeMyAbility  

We are proud to be working in partnership with Scottish Swimming.

Swimming provides the opportunity to learn a life skill whilst interacting and having fun in a group environment. This should be no different for a child with a disability and where possible your child will be included in a class with their peers.

What should you expect from our swimming lesson programme?

All children should be having fun! The should be involved in games-based activities to help them learn skills such as breathing, submerging and moving in the water. Swimming strokes will be introduced gradually once a child has learned the core aquatic skills.
