  • Parents/guardians must remain on the premises whilst the student is attending their swimming lessons. This is imperative in case of the unlikely event of a medical emergency, building evacuation or other emergencies.

  • Students must be collected promptly at the end of the lesson. 

  • Lessons start on the agreed time slot that is reserved on the booking platform. Student/parents are advised to arrive on poolside 5 minutes before their lesson.

  • Students in a group lesson can be refused entry to the lesson if they are more than 5 minutes late for a class, as it disrupts the lesson for the other pupils. 

  • Parents/students accept full responsibility for late arrival to any type of lesson and credits/refunds and or an extension of the lesson is unavailable.

 

Swimming Lesson Dress Code & Hygiene

  • All children should wear appropriate fitting costumes/trunks specifically designed for swimming.

  • No jewellery should be worn during a swimming lesson. Religious or medical bracelets are allowed but should not distract the swimmer from their lesson.  

  • The use of goggles is permitted but students may be asked to remove them when performing certain skills (unless there is a medical reason for goggles to be worn).

  • All students should shower before their lesson. Please ensure that all hair gel/body lotions etc. are removed. This will help to keep the water clean.

  • Make sure your child uses the toilet before the lesson commences.

  • Please ensure your child showers after the lesson.

Student Progression

  • All students work towards the "UKIYO Swim School development programme”.

  • Swimming Teachers continually assess all students progression throughout each month.  

  • Progression of all students will be at the judgment of the swimming teacher supervisor and in accordance with the progression within the criteria of the "UKIYO Swim School development programme"  

  • Students will be moved up to the next class when they meet the skills criteria required and if there is adequate room in the next level for movement to the next level.  

  • Upon completion of a level, the parent/guardian will be contacted explaining that the child is ready to move up to the next level.  

  • Due to the continuous progressive nature of our programme, and the variety of ability levels within each session, we cannot guarantee a specific time slot on progression, as space within the next stage may not always be immediately available.  

Video & Picture Consent

  • We may use a mobile phone or other video recording devices to assist students in understanding their technique.

  • We may ask to use a video or picture on social media platforms. 

  • We will always forward the student/parent a consent form before adding any video or pictures to our social media platforms and or webpage.

School term breaks & holidays & Intensive programmes

  • Public Schools & International Schools in Warsaw have different dates for school terms. Group lessons dates will be adjusted accordingly to suit the majority of students within the group and Ukiyo Swim School may offer an intensive swim programme instead of the regular group time-slot during the school holidays for parents/students who stay in Warsaw during the School holidays.

Changing Teacher

  • We will use reasonable endeavours to provide the same instructor for each lesson within a course. However, relief instructors may be used without prior notification. 

  • We reserve the right to appoint a new teacher at any time and may, at times need to provide an alternative teacher for a class or classes due to illness or for any other unforeseen circumstances.  

  • In the event a teacher is away for a long period of time we will try to keep the same cover teacher for the time period where possible.  

  • If a teacher is absent, UKIYO Swim School reserves the right to join classes together if considered appropriate. We would always try to put a replacement teacher in place immediately however, if this is not manageable, we would put the classes together in order to avoid the cancellation. This would be an extremely rare occurrence as additional teachers are usually available to cover any such eventualities.

  • Parents who's child attends Pr1me lessons may view on pools side, however, parents must not interfere with the lessons or distract the swimming teachers.  (During the Covid 19 Pandemic - these rules have changed and no parents are allowed on poolside)

  • We do ask that all spectators remain in the seating area in order to prevent any unnecessary distractions for the teachers and make every effort to ensure that all parents/guardians abide by the pool dress rules.
