Location: Willow Lodge
Procedures to follow post-Covid: We have put together some information to help you when swimming at Bubwith. This includes arrival, changing and departure procedures. Please click here to read the pool information. PLEASE NOTE: As we have a record of who is attending our lessons through our booking system and registers we are able to track and trace should we need to. We will have the NHS QR Code available to scan on your phone too.
PLEASE NOTE: NORMALLY SWIM ACADEMY LESSONS ARE WITHOUT A PARENT OT CARER IN THE POOL WITH EACH CHILD HOWEVER BECAUSE OF COVID RESTRICTIONS AND TO ENABLE US TO RETURN TO THE POOLS SAFELY WE DO NOW REQUIRE AN ADULT IN THE POOL WITH EACH CHILD. OUR TEACHERS ARE NORMALLY IN THE POOL WITH LEVEL 1 AND 2 LESSONS TO PROVIDE THE ASSISTANCE NEEDED FOR NON-SWIMMER HOWEVER THIS WILL NOT BE THE CASE WHEN LESSONS RESUME, ALBEIT TEMPORARILY. AT SOME POINT WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO RETURN TO A MORE NORMAL WAY OF TEACHING AND THE TEACHER WILL BE BACK IN THE POOL.
HOWEVER OUR TEACHERS WILL STILL BE WORKING WITH EACH CHILD INDIVIDUALLY TO HELP THEM PROGRESS AT THEIR OWN PACE.
