Swim England, the national governing body for swimming in England, in accordance with the Government has this week issued guidance for when the pools reopen.

Covid measures


Face masks must be worn by adults.

From the carpark walk up to the school pool , use the fire door at the right side of the building served by a ramp to enter the building. Do not enter via the changing rooms.

Bring a bag to place your children's clothing into

Arrivals to the pool will be just 5 minutes before the class start time.

Use hand gel on entering via the fire door entrance

scan in to the NHS track and trace , the bar code is posted at the entrance.

Arrive beach ready costumes on under clothing.

Pack clothing in to a bag and place it down by the changing rooms at the shallow end.

Clockwise one-way system to walk around the pool

Please do not use the showers

Get dried and dressed in the changing rooms

If you prefer to bring your own kickboards and waddles (noodles) you will be welcome to do so. Poolside equipment will still be available for use as usual.

Poolside equipment is safely cleaned by rinsing in the pool chlorinated water.

Swimmers should shower at home before arriving at the pool.


The less time spent in changing areas , prevents the chance of Covid transmission.

Children will need to social distance in the water from children not in their family group. This does not apply to their own siblings. We all know how difficult this is when they are all excited to see their friends.

Please mention social distancing to your children before arriving at the pool, It will be just the same as what they will be doing in their school classes and play time.

SwimmingTeachers will guide children on distancing while in the water.

Swimming Teachers will be teaching from the poolside.

Parents can help their own child to enter the water safely if their child is a little nervous following the long break from swimming.

I know it's all so different, but things will improve over time. I hope this information helps.
