• Small Splashes Guidelines

    Whilst its true to say that chlorinated pools kill COVID and that baby swimming classes are considered very low risk, we recognise the need to keep you and your family safe during this period.

    As such we will be adopting the following temporary measures which must be followed by all parents/carers whilst attending our classes.

    1. ​Class numbers. We have REDUCED all of our classes capacity and reduced class time to 20 minutes. 

    2. Spectators. Until further notice we respectfully ask that you do not bring along spectators to our classes.

    3. Hand washing. Please use the hand sanitising stations before entering the building. 

    4. Medically fit and well. We ask everyone to view the Covid 19 Health questionnaire and only attend classes if well and healthy. See attachment. All adults and older children to wear masks in and around the pool. Not in the water. 

    5. Arrival time. Ideally we ask that you arrive with your swimming costume on under your clothes and that you arrive no sooner than 5 minutes before your class start time. 

    6. Late Arrivals. Please DO NOT arrive late. Classes will run on a strict schedule and if you do arrive late you may be asked to wait until the following class, regardless of level, or indeed you may not be able to attend your class at all should this class be full.

    7. Changing Time. When your class has finished we respectfully ask that you change and exit the building within 5-7 minutes. This ensures the changing rooms are free for corresponding classes.

    8. Changing Facilities. We will provide changing tables and chairs to sit on if watching your child swimming. Our Hygiene Officer will disinfect all used buckets, tables and chairs after use. The toilet can be used. 

    ​These, alongside other procedures have been adopted for the safety of all participants involved. These may be changed, improved upon or even reduced in time should additional guidelines provided by the STA (Swim Teachers Association), Swim England and PWTAG (Pool Water Treatment Advisory Group) updates their advice.
