Pool Admissions Policy
The safety of non-swimmers* and children is the responsibility of the supervising adult who is to be in attendance at all times. The supervising adult must maintain a constant watch over the children and be in close contact with those that are under the age of 8, or are weak or non-swimmers*.
All children under the age of 8 must be accompanied in the water by a parent or responsible adult (aged 18 years and over). An adult cannot be responsible for supervising more than two children under the age of 8.
All non-swimmers* must wear a floatation device unless closely supervised on a one-to-one basis by an adult who can swim*. All non swimmers and those wearing floatation devices are restricted to the designated shallow areas at all times and are not permitted to enter water of a depth greater than 1.35m.
In order that lifeguards can effectively monitor the supervision policy, customers may be asked to demonstrate their swimming ability – we are grateful for your co-operation in helping us to ensure your safety.
*The definition of the ability to swim is defined as the capacity to swim a recognised stroke unaided for a minimum of 50 metres, Jump from the side into water of 1.5 metres or more so that the head fully submerges and tread water for a minimum of 1 minute.
