Autism Friendly Swimming Lessons


 

As part of our return to lessons from the 19th April, we are pleased to announce that we can now resume our

Autism Friendly (SEN) lessons:

Thursdays - Hilltop School Pool - 7:15-8pm

 

This session will have lower lighting, no lane ropes, sensory toys and structure but without the strict formation of a lesson, along with a high teacher to swimmer ratio.

 

Our main aim is for the swimmers to have fun and understand individual safety when around water, learn the foundations for swimming and benefit physically from the fitness aspect swimming provides, whilst building a social circle with their peers also in attendance. We will also look at providing a relaxation therapy with the use of resistance and deep end pressure work.

All teachers are fully qualified, DBS checked and have worked alongside SEN schools for many years. Two of the teachers attending work in SEN schools and another has been a social worker for many years. 

 

The session will be up to a maximum of 45 minutes, but again based on individual abilities and requirements.

The fee for the session is £8.50 per week, payable in total by a full term.
