If you contact us stating you cannot attend under 24 hours before your lesson commences you will be charged for the lesson.

COVID Illness Policy

If you or anyone you have come into contact with contracts COVID please email us immediately and we will REFUND your remaining lessons. We understand this is a difficult time and do not want our customers to lose out financially if they are taken ill with COVID.

Illness

Never come to your swimming lesson if you and/or your child have any illness, such as, but not limited to: chest infection, conjunctivitis, measles, impetigo, ear infections, asthma or a heavy cold (first days of the cold). Please DO NOT come to your swimming lesson until the symptoms have cleared at least 24 hours prior to your swimming lesson or when your doctor has given the all-clear.

If your child has just a running nose but feels happy and active you will be able to come to your swimming lesson unless your GP has advised you otherwise. Under no circumstances must anyone suffering from diarrhoea or vomiting attend swimming during illness and up to 24 hours after full recovery and stools have returned to normal. If you are concerned about any medical condition, we ask that you always check with your GP before coming to any lessons.
