Additional needs and  swimming lessons 

Emma’s Otters  aims to be a fully inclusive swimming school and have been able to  provide a range of lessons from children needing 1:1s in a private environment, or a teacher understanding the need of a child.   no doubt everything in-between 

We are extremely flexible with our additional needs lessons and are very happy to have children with high needs in group lessons too, we may just need you to provide an adult to help them, or help our teachers to understand individual needs. 



We teach every child as an individual and we can always a happy to chat on how we may be able to  help you! 

We offer 1:1 lessons both in school time and out of school time. These can be for sole use or when we have other lessons.  Sole use a great to prevent distractions.  Where possible we can also try and have shared use of the pool.  though this is dependent on time available and the pool we are using. 


We also run lessons through the Short breaks scheme,  run by the isle of wight council,  this allows us to provide those with a short breaks memberships access to reduced priced and size  group lessons. 

We are very lucky  to have a range of knowledge and very aware of the sensory approach to swimming,  meaning our lessons are ideal for children with extra needs. We  can slow down the lessons to suit an individual, or change activities as needed.   we  are also very happy to plan a program to suit there particular needs including physio, exercise and doctor input. 


Our main stream lessons are 4 chilrden to 1 teacher and we have had hudge sucsess with children with addinal needs in the lessons too! 

Emma's has worked hard to ensure lessons can offer a range of certificates to praise the progress,  we have a large variety of programs  we mix and match in order to produce the best progression and incentive!
