Each Mainstream lesson lasts 30 minutes. Each Club lesson lasts 45 minutes. These times include changeover and the taking of the register prior to the class. This process may take up to 5 minutes so actual teaching time may be reduced for a period of up to 5 minutes per lesson.
We try to ensure that continuity of teachers is maintained. We reserve the right to replace a member of staff with no prior notice if a member of staff is absent for any reason. We reserve the right to cancel classes for any reason. As much notice will be given in this event and a lesson will be added to the end of your current allocation.
Absence from lessons
If a pupil is absent from a lesson for any reason, a catch-up lesson may be requested. This must be requested AFTER the missed lesson and no more than 24 hours before the catch-up lessons. Lichfield Dolphins reserves the right to remove the catch-up facility with no notice.
Should all lesson criteria be marked as "passed" on 'Home Portal', there is no guarantee that the pupil may progress to a more advanced class. By agreeing to these Terms and Conditions, the customer understands that a pupil may only be moved either when there is space, or under the discretion of the Swim School Coordinator.
Customers should not expect assessments to be made weekly. The teacher will carry out class grading whenever possible. 'HomePortal' does not guarantee feedback on every session. Due to the nature of the system, the customer understands that data from the most recent lesson may not appear until the following day.
Refunds must be applied for before your block of swimming lessons begin. Once your block of swimming lessons begins you will deemed to have started the service with us. All applications for refunds will be considered and a decision made within seven days. If a refund is deemed to be applicable, any spent lessons will be deducted from the refunded amount. Refunds may be give via the original payment method or BACS transfer.
