Step 4 in the Governments Roadmap to Reopening.

Following the recent guidance from Swim England we are able return to our pre covid operation model in our swim scheme - Swim4Life. 

The safety of our customers and staff has always been our priority.  We have continued to follow government advice and guidelines and worked very closely with industry governing bodies - UK Active and Swim England to ensure our facilities are safe for all our customers. 

Your child’s lesson day and time will remain the same unless you have been contacted otherwise. We have started contacting some families and will continue to make these calls during the next week to bring the lessons back in line with our pre covid pool timetable.
What to expect…
We’re all in this together and we need your help to keep our swimming lessons running smoothly and safely. 

  • Keep all attending lessons to a minimum to respect others space
  • Spectator areas will be open but on limited spaces. There is no longer a need to sit on poolside. 
  • Arrive at your leisure centre at the time of your swimming lesson, and no earlier than five minutes before the start of your lesson.
  • Lockers will be open for use.
  • Where possible we will ask teachers to be in the water and have a swim assistant if required.
  • There will be no more one way system and changing rooms will be available before and after lessons. We do however encourage all children to continue to arrive ‘swim ready’ with swimwear on underneath clothing, keeping personal belongings to a minimum.
  • Do not gather in groups
  • Wash and sanitise hands regularly. Hand sanitising stations have been added throughout the leisure centres for your convenience.
