CORONA VIRUS – November 2020 Lockdown 

You will all be aware that despite swimming being one of safest activities available and one that is important for our children’s mental and physical wellbeing, we are required to postpone lessons for the time being due to the new regulations imposed by the government on Saturday evening.

So, we regret that as from THURSDAY 5th NOVEMBER 2020, all lessons are temporarily suspended until further notice.

We are in direct touch with our governing body who are lobbying the government to allow swimming lesson to continue and we will of course monitor the situation closely for any changes.

As soon as we know when we are able to resume, we will be in contact with you.
We will of course credit you for lessons as appropriate.

Thank you for your understanding and patience in these difficult times, we will see you all again soon and in the meantime, Stay Safe.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR RESUMING COVID SAFE SWIMMING LESSONS. 

COVID is still with us and we are taking it seriously.
Making the right arrangements is very complicated and we have taken great care to put protocols in place that allow us to deliver effective and continuous lessons for your children whilst keeping everyone safe.

We can only provide effective lessons for you if you follow these instructions FULLY, so please work with us and follow them to the letter!

INTRODUCTION
Our aim is that all our clients, parents and teachers remain safe and the best way is NOT to attend if you are not ‘Covid Safe’.
Please read the full details and Protocols under the ‘Stop Press’ tab.
Clients are be asked to submit the ‘Declaration’ that they are ‘Covid Safe’ before being accepted for a class.
Please download the Declaration and either return it with your Booking Form or bring it with you to the 1st lesson. Thank you.
In order that we can provide you with continuous and ongoing lessons, we are applying a zero tolerance approach to safety.
The teachers will therefore refuse attendance unless ALL the requirements are met, so PLEASE come prepared.
For those who do attend, please observe the following specific instructions.

Being on time is critical, so that we can manage the lessons effectively, avoiding cost rises and in the interests of the pupils.
