Our Tongham pool has just had a huge £11,000 renovation, so has brand new custom built changing facilities. Anyone entering the changing room or poolside must wear a pair of the blue overshoes provided or remove their shoes. Once you are changed and ready please ensure your children use the toilet and have a quick shower before coming on to poolside. Please make sure the children shower slightly before their lesson start time to ensure a smooth change-over period between lessons.
We fully appreciate that it is very enjoyable and rewarding for parents to watch their children learning to swim and share their enthusiasm. We politely ask that parents refrain from talking to their children whilst lessons are taking place as this draws the children’s attention away from the teacher and the lesson, which can be very dangerous. If you feel by watching the lessons on poolside your child is becoming distracted and not reaching their potential we are more than happy for parents to wait in the changing room or in their car whilst lessons take place. Please do not leave the site in case of emergency.
Please change in a timely manner after the lesson has finished and leave the property very quietly, with children fully supervised at all times, especially near the roads.
