Water Safety for Children

We can offer short courses lasting one to one and a half hours on water safety for primary age children.
As we are located on the canal our main focus is on safety near canals but we cover other water dangers too.
Initially children are introduced to risk assessment before being challenged to identify risks around the canal.
Following this we discuss and practice techniques that can be used to help if someone is in difficulty in the water.
Finally children work in small groups to role play to enable us to assess that the main safety messages have been remembered.
