Learn to Swim

Pendle Leisure Trust follows a structured STA Learn To Swim programme.

The STA Learn to Swim programme aims to take children on a journey from their first splash to developing water confidence and competence, while having fun and making friends!

Children who enrol onto the Academy will be given a 16-page Success Tracker so they, and their parents, can follow and map their progress.

The stages are designed to reward your child for their development of the essential aquatic skills they need to be confident, competent and safe in the water. 

STA Learn to Swim Awards:

There are several stages to the STA Learn to Swim programme, which aims to teach children how to swim and learn more about water safety and how to self-rescue from a young age. The programme provides a progressive aquatic pathway for learners of all ages to progress from their first aquatic experiences to becoming safe and proficient swimmers.

The programme builds children's knowledge and skill development at each level, rewarding their achievements through a range of exciting rewards and certificates. There are five stages in total, which are interlinked, for children to work through...
