Special arrangements may be made in the event of serious illness or injury.

Lessons will be rescheduled in the event of pool evacuation being necessary.

Poolside Etiquette

When your child is in their lesson and under the instruction of the swim teacher please remember this is our classroom and refrain from calling out instructions as this undermines the teacher's authority and seriously confuses the child.

However, you are most welcome to voice your praise and encouragement for your child's efforts. Please leave any perceived bad behaviour during lessons to be dealt with by the teacher.

Other Information

Lessons run during the school terms and at the end of each term the children receive certificates of achievement.

Should you wish your child to continue with further lessons, please advise in advance by filling in the rebooking sheet which will be in the pool office towards the end of each term. This ensure your child's space is reserved. If you require a change of day or time please indicate this on the booking sheet and we will endeavour to do this.
