Make a splash with SEND swimming lessons at WV Active

Children and adults with special educational needs and disabilities can make a splash with swimming lessons at the City of Wolverhampton Council's leisure centres.

 

WV Active Bilston-Bert Williams offers children's swimming lessons for four to seven year-olds on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays, and for eight to 15-year-olds on Saturdays and Sundays, with experienced teachers helping your child achieve the Swim England Alpha and Water Safety awards.

 

There will be a maximum of two students per lesson, and parents and carers are encouraged to be in the pool with their child.

 

Adult group sessions are suitable for anyone aged 16 and over with SEND, and take place at WV Active Bilston-Bert Williams on Mondays to Fridays. There will be a maximum of two students per lesson, with parents and carers encouraged to be in the pool during the lesson. Again, students work towards the Swim England Alpha and Water Safety awards.

 

Both cost £40 for a block of 10 lessons. For more information, please visit www.wvactive.com/swimming.

 

Meanwhile, WV Active Bilston-Bert Williams and WV Active Central also offer hour-long family SEND swim sessions. Children must be accompanied by a parent or carer at all times in the pool. Sessions are free for children, parents and carers if children have a free Yo! Active membership. For more details, please call 01902 551010.

 

Paul Yeomans, Service Lead for WV Active, said: "We want to make our WV Active leisure centres as inclusive as possible and are pleased to offer a wide range of opportunities for customers with special educational needs and disabilities, such as these swim sessions."

 

WV Active offers a variety of sport and fitness activities for everyone in a safe and friendly environment at its three leisure centres, WV Active Aldersley, WV Active Central and WV Active Bilston-Bert Williams.

 

There are three WV Active memberships available – standard, corporate and concessionary – which can be used across three sites. Details are available at www.wvactive.com.

 

WV Active has also teamed up with Wolves Foundation to deliver Yo! Active, offering a wide range of free physical activities for children and young people in Wolverhampton all year round, including opportunities for children and young people with SEND.
