Mandatory information we require in order for us to deliver a quality service

When enrolling onto one of a swimming courses, parents and guardians are required to provide the following information.

  • Parent’s Name
  • Parent’s Email Address
  • Parent’s Telephone Number
  • Account Password
  • Child’s Name
  • Child’s Date of Birth
  • Child’s Swimming Ability
  • Details of Any Siblings

Providing this information is a mandatory requirement for parents as it is used to enable us to:

1) Communicate with parents.

2) Allocate a child to the correct course based on age and ability.

3) Coordinate the most convenient courses for siblings.

Optional information that may help us to deliver a quality service

In addition to the mandatory information that we require in order for us to deliver a quality service, parents may wish to provide or allow us to collect the following information.

Medical Details

Although not a mandatory requirement, we would strongly advise parents to provide details of any medical conditions that may impact a participant. For example:

A child may have a hearing impairment – By providing this information prior to attending a course, this can then be communicated to their designated teacher who will make allowances for this when conducting their lesson.

Video Analysis – A Picture Paints a Thousand Words

Sometimes as a parent and child it is hard to see what improvements have been made over time or what specific areas of a skill may require a little more work.

Our in house Classcapture app allows parents to opt into our video analysis feature. The feature allows a 20 second video to be recorded which is then accompanied with a short note to describe the media image. For example:

Stroke Development

A child is struggling with the leg kick on a specific stroke. As the parent watches from the side of the pool and sees their child moving freely in the water, they believe the child is making good progress. However, their child is likely to continue on the same course next term as their leg kick (which can’t be seen by the parent) is not correct.

The parent has opted to allow the teacher to take a short video clip.

When creating an account, the parent has opted to allow their child’s swimming teacher to take a short video clip of the child during their swimming lesson.

The teacher takes a very short video clip of the child when performing the leg kick in question. The video clip is accompanied with a note that explains what work is required to improve. The clip is then uploaded to the parent’s secure online account where both the parent and child are able to watch and see exactly what needs to be improved upon to progress to the next level.

Once uploaded to the parent’s account, the video is automatically deleted from the teacher’s registers.

How long do we store information?

It is company policy to store your information for no longer that 6 months from your last session with us. After this time your information will be deleted, unless you have specifically requested we retain your account details.
