Preparing for a safe return for the swim school


We have been busy planning the safe return of the swim school. This has involved us completing our swim school risk assessment and procedures in conjunction with Swim England COVID guidelines. Our swim teachers have also received COVID training.  



Things will therefore be a little bit different as your child’s safety and our team’s safety is our first priority.




  1. We ask where possible a maximum of one adult per child within the complex and where possible please do not bring any siblings.

  2. Please do not bring your child to their lesson if they or any of your household is displaying any COVID symptoms. Please ring us to advise you will not be attending on 01278 752113 choosing the swim school option.

  3. Over 11’s are required to wear a face-covering when inside the complex (other than in the water) please play your part in adhering to government guidelines. This includes the reception areas, changing areas and spectating area.

  4. Upon arrival please use the hand sanister station at reception. 

  5. Please ensure your child comes ‘swim ready’ for their lesson. This means costume/shorts on under their clothes.

  6. We are operating to a one way system. The family rooms corridor is the way in and either the changing rooms or spectator corridor is the way out. Please follow this.

  7. The changing rooms may be used for removing clothes but please social distance from others.

  8. To avoid congestion with swimmers leaving the pool we ask you and your child to be ready on the poolside in the marked zone for your lesson 5 minutes before the start. This then means the children leaving the pool can do so without clashing with you. If you arrive late please speak to reception who will see if they can safely escort you through. The accompanying adult is required to keep the swimmers bag (don’t use a locker) and then sit on the marked grandstand area.

  9. Please encourage your child to shower on the poolside before your lesson.

  10. Teachers will not be able to teach from within the water in line with Swim England guidance. They have all received COVID training and further training regarding teaching from the poolside. If you child is at level 1 (beginner) these lessons will take place in the baby pool. If you wish to accompany them in the water for your first lesson you may do. In doing so please ensure when in the water you socially distance from others.

  11. Teachers also will be unable to help with goggles so please have a practice with your child and be on standby to assist during their lesson if required. We would like children with longer hair (below the chin) to wear a swim hat this can help their progress a lot.

  12. Lessons will be taking place in the whole 25m pool which means unfortunately at this time we will be unable to offer a pre or post lesson swim.

  13. After your lesson we encourage your child to get changed and leave via the spectator corridor and shower at home. There is another hand sanitiser point on the spectator door.

  14. All swimming aids will be cleaned before and after use. If you would prefer for your child to have their own float you may bring this with you.




We are confident your child will continue to progress with their swimming under COVID procedures. Please feel free to discuss any concerns with Jenny our swim school co-ordinator by emailing swim-teacher@brean.com
