When dealing with swimming lessons for all ages and abilities it is extremely important to put safety first, and we do exactly that.  It would be more cost effective for our company to run lessons with larger groups of students.  However, health and safety and lesson quality are so important to us that we keep all our classes as 1:1, 1:2 or small group classes.  This allows our instructors to focus fully on each student's safety and needs within the lessons.

At the beginning of every term, we have our specialised trainer Dave Perry run a first aid refresher course.  This covers CPR and other emergency training as well as operational procedures.  This is far more than is legally required, but you cannot put a price on safety.  We also follow strict safeguarding procedures to ensure we maintain the welfare of our students.

With around 20 years experience in the leisure industry, including his previous roles as Leisure Centre Manager and STA Regional Development Officer, Dave Perry now runs his own training company Aquatic Training Courses.  Providing a range of training courses for the leisure industry covering lifesaving, first aid, swimming teaching and pool plant operator courses.  He brings a professional eye and mind to the safety concerns of our swim school.

Another imperative addition to the team is David Ashton, our Health & Safety Consultant.  Along with his duties as instructor and site manager, David has updated SwimWay's entire health & safety operational procedures.  He continues with regular pool visits to ensure our sites are up to spec.  David is the eyes and ears of our safety awareness, keeping us at the forefront of your and your children’s safety during our lessons.
