Teaching Policies, Procedures & Parental Responsibilities

  • Swimming Teachers will take responsibility for students during their swimming lessons, but parents/guardians are required to remain nearby (poolside viewing or designated viewing area) so that if required the parent/guardian can deal with toilet breaks or any behavioural issues, our staff will NOT take pupils to the toilet.  

  • 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 ask for  the student/parent a consent before adding any video or pictures to our social media platforms and or webpage.

Changing lesson time-slot

  • Students/parents may request a change of day/time-slot or Swimming Teacher and we will try to accommodate your request, provided space is available and or the requested time-slot is available.

  • Swimming ability and speed of progression will vary depending upon the swimmer. Some students just need more practise.

  • In the event of a pool closure, we will make every attempt to contact our students/parents as soon as possible.

  • In the event of a planned pool closure, the student/parent will be offered an alternative day/class or credit to the next booking.

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.  

 

Communication

  • Questions regarding the progression of students should be directed towards Anthony Schulz via enquiry@ukiyoswimschool.com.pl  

  • All Students/parents/guardians are required to supply UKIYO Swim School with a valid e-mail address/mobile number for quick communication purposes.

Viewing

  • Parents/guardians are not permitted on poolside at Wodny Park and Trojdena and must sit either on the seats next to the 50m pool or behind the glass next to reception. In coming to Wodny Park Parents/guardians understand it is a drop-off and pick up only.

  • 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. 

  • It is difficult for the teaching staff to gain full attention from their pupils if they are being distracted; progress can be affected if children are not fully able to concentrate.  

  • No photography or filming is permitted on poolside or in the changing area without the prior approval from the Centre Management that the lessons are being conducted at.

We reserve the right to request that your child should be removed from classes should they persistently disrupt or are seen to be putting themselves or anyone else at risk during the class. If a child is removed under these circumstances and suitable alternatives arrangements cannot be made, no refund will be provided.

  • Once a lesson has finished, if the child wishes to spend extra time in the pool, it is important an adult must be in the water at all times with the child. If the parent is not swimming, the child must leave the pool area once their lesson has finished.
