A Bury St Edmunds swimming instructor has launched land-based water safety lessons at schools.

Sue Brown says the dry side lessons focus on how to stay safe and help others in a variety of scenarios at home, in the pool and on the beach.

She also teaches children how to flip onto their backs and float in the water.

Ms Brown, who runs H2Go-Swim and is usually based at Moreton Hall Health Club, has started running the lessons at Sebert Wood Primary and hopes to hold them at more schools.

She said: “Dry side lessons are quite vital now because children don’t often get swimming lessons at school until Year 3 and it might only be for one term.”

She said it also helps prepare children who are nervous about going into the water.
