Safety, Policies and Affiliations

Polite Policies to help us get the best from the Swimming School.

1). Please do not park in the car park shared with the Primary School before 6pm. They have the right to use it before 6pm.

2). Please take outdoor shoes off in the entrance to the school, and place in the racks provided.

3). Current Regulations have stated that there should be no "tech" in the changing rooms or shower area.  This is because of the ability of these devices to "record" in these areas.

4). No eating around the poolside please.

5). No running any where in the building.

Please report any "Bad" or "Inappropriate" behaviour to the Office or a Member of Staff.
