Entrance Policy

We’re committed to working with parents to create a safe environment for children.

All children under the age of eight should always be accompanied by a guardian aged 16 years or over, this person may be responsible for up to two children. Guardians must maintain constant supervision particularly in the water and changing rooms. We advise that children under 5 years should be supervised in the water on a one-to-one basis.

Parents/guardians have a specific responsibility for the safety of their own children, this cannot be abdicated to lifeguards. The role of the lifeguard is to maintain a safe and healthy environment for all swimmers.
