learn with us – you’re in safe hands

Learn with us – you’re in safe hands.

The Swim England Learn to Swim Programme is the leading national teaching syllabus for delivering safe, inclusive and effective swimming lessons for all ages.

The structured and progressive content is based on a games-led approach to ensure children enjoy learning. With a bright new range of badges and certificates, the Programme provides motivation and support for children at every level – from their first splash to gaining their enhanced aquatic skills.

Engages and motivates learners of every age and ability – fun lesson content and clear, structured stages mean learners and teachers can easily see and monitor progress. This helps to build learner confidence and competence in the water.

Exciting Awards – our comprehensive range of Awards and badges to motivate children at every stage underpin the Programme. Our Awards scheme is one of the most successful in British Sport, recognised by parents, teachers and swimmers alike.

Swimmers in our lessons are always in safe hands. First and foremost we constantly stress the need for safety, so not only will your child learn to feel safe in the water but, will also be taught appropriate behaviour when at the pool.

We have had to make a few changes to how the lessons operate at Burnley Leisure.

Before you set off for your swimming lesson:

  • We are asking our customers to come ‘swim ready’, this means to have your swimwear on underneath your clothes. This will help limit the time spent in the changing rooms.
  • We request that only one adult attends with the child for their lesson.
  • Turn up only 5 minutes before you child’s lessons is due to start.
  • If your child is wearing goggles, they must be able to put them on and take them off by themselves

Entering the facility:

  • We have a one way system on entering the building, there are arrows on the floor to assist you with this.
  • Please report to the reception desk on arrival and book your child in.
  • Input your car registration details on the tablet located on the reception desk.
  • Hand sanitisers are provided at various points around the facility,

Changing rooms:

  • Enter the changing room area through the door that is labelled entry.
  • Using a cubicle -change your child in a cubicle with a green sticker when entering the facility.
  • Children must shower and use the toilet prior to their lesson starting.
  • Toilets are on a 1 in 1 out basis.


  • Whilst waiting for your instructor please stand on the green floor markers to the right of poolside, social distancing will be in place.
  • There is a one way system around the poolside
  • When waiting to collect your child after the lessons please stand on the red markers to the left hand side on entry to poolside.

  • The viewing gallery has also changed. There will be limited seating which is clearly marked.
  • One way system on the stairs, there are arrows to assist you.
  • If you need to use the lift, only the same household or bubble are allowed in there at any one time.

Completion of lesson:

  • We are requesting that the children shower at home after their lesson, however limited showers are available.
  • On completion for the lesson please use a cubicle with a red sticker this will help the team when santising areas.

What are we doing:

  • Sanitising of equipment before and after use.
