3s Swim School Terms and Conditions

Please read these terms and conditions carefully and, if needed, print a copy of it and keep for your reference.

Trial

You can have as a one off session to try and see how it goes, but you still need to pay for it a standard lesson fee. After the trial if decide to commit to the full term, your fee will be deducted from the full price, as this is to cover the cost of our teachers coaching time and facilities hire.

Booking

At 3s Swim School we will endeavour to find a day and time that suits you best. It will be discussed and agreed with you before the confirmation and a payment for the lessons.

Re-booking

1 month before the end of term you will receive all information regarding the next term. If you fail to send confirmation and to make a payment before the provided due date, your place will be offered to a waiting list, unless special arrangement has been made.

Letting us know you will miss your lesson(s)

It will be much appreciated if you can let us know as much in advance if you are going to miss your lesson(s). As we can try to do our best to use this slot for a make-up session, if that suits someone. Please note that we have limited availability and pool time therefore the more notice we have, the more likely we will be able to schedule a class.

Illness

Please DO NOT come to your swimming lesson if you and/or your child have chest infection, heavy cold or any other infectious deceases. Please DO NOT come to your swimming lesson until the symptoms have cleared at least 48 hours prior to your swimming lesson or when your doctor has given the all-clear.

If your child has just a running nose but feels happy and active you will be able to come to your swimming lesson unless your GP has advised you otherwise. Under no circumstances must anyone suffering from diarrhoea or vomiting attend swimming during illness and up to 2 weeks after full recovery and stools have returned to normal. If you are concerned about any medical condition, we ask that you always check with your GP before coming to any lessons.

Taking pictures and a photo image rights

You are allowed to take photographs only of YOUR child and just on a last session of the course. Permission form should be filled up before that.

In line with the 1988 Copyright Act, 3s Swim School reserves the right to use any or all photography or video taken by us during our photoshoots for our own publicity and promotion purposes.

We are doing our best to ensure you have the same teacher for all your time swimming with us. However, we can’t guarantee that due to illness, or other family and life issues sometimes, so we will provide a cover teacher to continue of the lessons without the break.

This consists of a Huggies swim nappy (found in all major supermarkets) and a “Happy Nappy” made of a neoprene, wetsuit like material.

Lost Property and Valuables

If you lose any valuable items please inform the instructor on the day and email us ASAP on [email protected] and we will do our best to find it. However, we cannot accept responsibility for any lost items, so make sure your valuables are well secured and taken care of. Unfortunately all wet stuff can’t be kept due to Legionella risk.

Spectators and parents on a pool side

If you want to bring more than one child to lessons they MUST be accompanied by an adult at all times. We strongly advise not to seat on a pool side next to the class, to seat on another end of the pool or in the spectator’s area. This helps for your children to focus more on a lesson and their instructor. All this might vary depending on a venue and a pool side shape.

3S Swim Ltd will only offer a refund if you have a valid doctor’s certificate, but please note there will be a £15 or 10% (the larger amount) cancellation fee from the remaining lessons.

If, for whatever reason, you need to cancel, 24 hours notice must be given or a full price charge will apply.

If the lesson is going in your chosen pool, the client should bring the teacher through, or cover the ticket price.
