SwimWay Assessments And Awards Weeks
Throughout every term, all our students are continually assessed according to the SwimWay methodology. This progress is recorded by our instructors via their HomePortal mobile apps and/or online access. The office staff have access to this information, and can keep up to date on each child’s progress to ensure any future 1 : 2 lesson bookings are matched correctly according to the instructor’s and new clients feedback.
Near the end of every term, we have a week long formal assessment period where each child’s progress is assessed based on what stage they have been working toward during the term. The instructor will take the children through the skills to develop and pass criteria of the stage to see whether the student will pass the whole stage, or receive a pass criteria badge.
It is a fun week for the children. Because we are continuously assessing them throughout the term, it is more about having an official week to mark them and reward their hard work.
Once the assessments are completed, the instructors pass all the finished work to the office staff to double check and correct the work. This work is then printed out, and our lovely administrative team spend a long weekend writing out hundreds and hundreds of certificates for each and every child.
Then on the second last week of term, the certificates and badges are given to all the children! The kids love the awards they receive, and it gives them a little incentive to push themselves a little further every term. Indeed at the end of every Summer Term, we also award all the children our SwimWay medals which were a HUGE hit when we introduced them this past summer.
Don’t forget of course that all our parents also have access to their children’s progress via the Parents Online HomePortal. Register now, and you will be able to watch as your little swimmer flourishes!
