Returning Swimmer Application


    We're ready to welcome you back!

    Welcome to Great Waves Swimming Academy! Before your lesson, we need to collect information for the swimmer(s), including details on parent/guardian contact information, medical information and any additional needs. This information will help us to:

    • Ensure information is up to date if required for NHS Track and Trace
    • Provide information to your instructor
    • Plan out lessons to best meet your swimmer's needs

    Parent/Guardian Information

    Primary Contact Information

    Please complete the information below for the two main contacts for the swimmer. The primary contact is the person we will get in touch with as a first point of contact. For adult swimmers, the primary contact will be yourself and the secondary contact is the next of kin.

    Secondary Contact Information

    Please add contact information for a secondary contact in the event we cannot get in touch with the primary contact.
    Swimmer(s) Information

    Swimmer(s) Information


    Please complete the information below for your swimmer(s), providing as much detail as possible for any additional information we may require.

    Behaviour, Anxiety and Emotions

    We want to understand a little more about the swimmer, how to support them in a new environment and how to manage any challenging behaviour.


    Speech, Language and Communication

    We want to understand about your swimmer’s speech, language and communication. Please provide information if the swimmer has any difficulties with speech, language or communication:


    Co-ordination, Processing and Movement

    This part of the questionnaire provides us with information on the types of activity a swimmer is able to participate in and if our teachers are required to make adjustments to teaching practices.


    Sensory Processing

    During this part, we are hoping to gain an idea about your swimmer’s sensory processing needs. Are there any environments, noises, feelings or sensations that may be difficult or impact on learning? We want to gain an idea of the needs so that we can look at the dynamics in the pool and offer the most conducive learning environment.


    Teaching Methods and Learning

    Finally, to help us think about the lesson structure for your swimmer, we would like to know a little more about how they learn.

    Additional Information

    Great Waves Swimming Academy will plan your lesson to meet the needs of the swimmer. To assist us in getting to know you or your child, we require further information so that our lesson can offer the best support. Please provide information on the swimmers Physical Disability:
