We're really looking forward to welcoming all of our swimmers back to the pool!

We've captured all of the important information you and your swimmers will need to know before your first lesson back.

If you have any questions or concerns please get in touch with the T.J Dolphins team.

 

 

We ask that  only one adult  comes to the lesson with their swimmer and to arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before their lesson.

All swimmers will need to arrive ‘swim-ready’ with their swimming costume underneath their clothes as all children will be getting undressed in the foyer. The changing rooms will only be accessible after their lesson finishes to get changed.

 

Swimmers who need swim discs (circular armbands) will need to purchase their own set from our receptionist. All swim discs will cost £3 per disc.

If you are unsure how many discs your child will need please speak to our receptionist and she will be happy to advise.

 

To enter the building, all parents will need to wear a face covering and shoe covers.

We will have a small supply of face coverings but we ask that all customers bring their own.

We will provide each parent with a free pair of shoe covers for their first visit. We’d like you to keep hold of them and bring them with you to each session. If you forget, we will be able to provide a second pair for a small fee

 

Upon arrival, both parents and swimmers will be asked to use the hand sanitizer once they enter the foyer. Hand sanitizer will also be provided in the changing rooms, shower area and on pool side.

 

Simmers will get undressed in the foyer, pass their belongings to their parent/guardian, and wait in the foyer area for their swim teacher to collect their class and take them through to the pool.

 

Whilst the lesson is taking place, all parents will need to stand outside as the foyer area is not big enough to allow parents to spectate. We understand that parents will still want to keep track of their swimmer’s progress so at the end of each lesson, your child’s swim teacher will come outside to talk to the parents to tell you what the class have been working on today and what they’ll be focusing on next week.

The first week of lessons will be a reassessment of all swimmers to check what stage they are now swimming at and to ensure our Swim Teachers get them back up to the stage they were at back in March.

 

All our Swim Teachers will teach from pool side – this is inline with the latest Swim England COVID-19 guidance. Our lessons will be super engaging, effective and fun for all swimmers.

 

Swimmers will be kept at least one metre apart during the lesson – we will be using coloured bean bags as markers for where the children need to swim in between.

 

For our Beginner with Parent Classes, the parents/guardians will still be able to enter the water with their child but will need to stay directly in front of them in order to maintain distance from other swimmers and parents to their sides.

Parents will be asked to leave their belongings in a designated space on poolside as oppose to using the changing rooms.

Parents/guardians who are going in the pool will need to live in the same household as the child they are attending the class with.

The changing rooms and foyer area will be cleaned thoroughly every 30 minutes in between each lesson.

 

Cashless payments – in-line with the government’s latest advice, we will no longer be accepting cash or cheques. All payments will need to be made via our contactless card machine. We accept contactless and chip and pin payments from all major credit and debit cards, including Visa, MasterCard and American Express, as well as payments through Samsung Pay, Apple Pay and Google Pay.

 

Catch ups will be cancelled for the foreseeable future to avoid mixing children with other classes. We will not be able to offer refunds for missed lessons. On the odd occasion that we have to cancel the lessons due to unforeseeable reasons we will refund the lesson cost.

 

All parents can park on the St Wilfrids School main car park but we ask that parents park sensibly within the marked bays.

 

The children's playground at St Wilfrids will be washed down after each school day, so we ask that parents who bring younger children to please refrain from allowing them to play on the playground.

Welcome Back!
