About Scheme

Charnwood Swim School lessons follow the ASA Learn to Swim Programme (formally the ASA National Plan for Teaching Swimming). Lessons delivered using the ASA Learn to Swim Framework use fun and games to take children from the first splash to full competence in the pool and will ultimately help your child develop confidence in the water.

The British Gas ASA Learn to Swim Programme guides your child through seven clearly defined stages, as well as a foundation stage for younger children who need to gain water confidence first, and sport specific stages once they have gained all of the core swimming skills. All of the ASA Learn to Swim Programme is supported by the Kellogg’s ASA Awards scheme… that’s the badges and certificates you probably remember getting as a youngster. Our staff fully understand that all children develop slightly differently to one another, which is why we continually assess our swimmers and will award badges and certifcates, as well as suggesting movements at any point during a term.

However, you will receive an end of term report in order to help track your child’s progress in our lessons.Please use the Learn to Swim Scheme menu on the left hand side to navigate through the different stages of swimmer we cater for, each item will give a brief example of content delivered at each stage, along with expected criteria and any supplementary
