Learn to Swim

The Learn to Swim programme, part of the National Framework for Swimming in Scotland, aims to raise standards and achieve consistency in swimming programmes across Scotland. Scottish Water, Proud to Support the Learn to Swim programme, have enabled us to develop the programme over the next few years and roll it out to help 100,000 children to develop the skills they need to be safe, competent and confident swimmers.

For parents, encouraging your child to learn to swim is one of the most important skills you will teach them. If you get children interested in swimming when they’re young there’s a good chance they’ll enjoy the water for the rest of their life, and remain fit and healthy.

Scottish Swimming's new Learn to Swim National Framework provides a clear set of National Standards and a pathway which allows parents to see how their child is progressing, and what this actually means in terms of their swimming ability.

Enrol your child in swimming lessons today and you’ll also have peace of mind that they’re safer when they’re near water.
