Pool admission policy for children

Children under 4

Children under 4 years of age must be accompanied in the water by a responsible person over the age of 16 on a 1:1 ratio.

The ratio becomes 1:2 if any child under 4 is wearing a suitable buoyancy aid that is ‘kite marked’ or carries a BS EN number.

Buoyancy aids accepted under this policy are those that fully support the child's weight in the water and remain secure in and out of the water, for example, armbands, or a float jacket or suit. Buoyancy aids that are handheld, such as floats, are not considered appropriate.

Children aged 4 to 7

Children aged 4 to 7 years of age must be accompanied in the water by a responsible person over the age of 16, with no more than 2 children per responsible person.

Responsible person over the age of 16 may supervise up to 3 children aged between 4 to 7 years of age in the Teaching Pool or a designated ‘controlled area’, such as a boom pool or laned off section of shallow water.

Children aged 8 to 11

Children aged 8 to 11 years of age must be accompanied into the facility by a responsible person over the age of 16 years.

The responsible person is not required to enter the water but must remain within the facility and supervise the children.
