Check the safety arrangements in advance Teach children never to swim alone Be cautious about booking villas that do not have safety fencing Take a first aid course – know how to resuscitate a child Ask your travel company if the hotel pool has a lifeguard

Actively supervise all young children near water Choose pools that are fenced with locking gates Even if a pool has a lifeguard – know where your children are, and what they are doing in the water Let children take swimming classes whilst on holiday –they are a great way of gaining water confidence and learning essential water safety skills Inflatables are not a substitute for supervision or swimming ability

Never swim alone Do not dive into unknown depths of water, and only jump feet first into water Do not push or jump onto others Know where to get help in an emergency
