Here at Better we understand the importance of water safety and think you should too.

Particularly in the lead up to the Summer holidays, whether it's poolside, beaches, rivers or lakes, there is a chance that you, or your family will be near water. Because of this, it's important that you're aware of how to be safe in, and around water so you and your family can be safe when making a splash this summer!

Our partners at Swimming Teaching Association (STA) have prepared a 'Water Safety Guide' complete with top tips and advice to ensure you're clued up for the warmer months ahead spent in the swimming pool.



Being safe in the water


Disability Swim

Better Swim School offers a fully inclusive and accessible Learn to Swim Programme with additional specialist disability swimming sessions (dependent on location).

All pools are accessible with either a Poolpod, a hoist or ramp entry and our lifeguards are on hand to support if needed.


Building water confidence is an important step in the process of learning how to swim and can start at home with young children through everyday activities, such as playing in the bath and shower. 

Swimming lessons with our qualified and passionate swimming teachers will build on the basics and ensure that your little ones are confident in the pool, making them happy and safe swimmers.

Our adult swimming lessons are aimed at adults wanting to learn to swim or improve their existing water confidence and technique, all within in a fun and friendly environment.

We believe it's never too late to learn to swim and our Adult Swim School programme, complete with three levels (beginner, improver and advanced) will be the perfect place for you to start.





Prepare the tiny tots with water confidence at an early age with our adult and child learn to swim lessons. 

Our adult and child sessions focus on promoting early water confidence in a fun and friendly environment taught by experienced instructors. 

The sessions are available for children up to 3 years old and an adult (parent or guardian) must accompany the child in the water.

Teaching a child to swim at an early age can provide many benefits including:

  • Growing their confidence in the water
  • Improve their basic motor skills
  • A fun way to keep active and healthy
  • Peace of mind knowing they have an invaluable life skill

Family Swim

Swimming is a great way to make the most of family time, and is much more than just another activity.  It's an opportunity to create memories, connect generations and make the most of those precious family moments when the amount of time you spend together is fleeting.

Our family-friendly sessions give you the opportunity to enjoy the health, social and recreational benefits of swimming – allowing parents and children to become fitter, while enjoying the quality time together. 

Make sure to pack everyone’s swimwear, goggles and towels and head down to your local pool to discover a new world above and below the water.  All sessions are lifeguarded to keep your loved ones safe, and whilst in and around our pools Swim Safety rules do apply. If your older children are looking for more adventure, look out for our Aqua Splash swim sessions. An incredibly fun way to reclaim some family time together, just visit your local centre website for details on these sessions.


Included in our Better Swim School is our Rookie Lifeguard programme.

This programme will highlight the importance of water safety and has been designed to teach individuals the vital life skills they need to be confident in any water (shallow or deep) situation; pool, river or seaside.  Our delivery methods keep the children engaged, involved and motivated to learn. 

Whilst lessons are aimed at children, the skills learnt throughout the course are just as valuable to people of all ages.
