Parents are permitted on poolside on any week. Once the lesson has started, parents will be invited on to poolside. They will then be asked to go back to the changing rooms 5 minutes before the lesson end. The rule at this venue is that all belongings must be removed from changing areas during the lessons. If parents are coming onto poolside, there is a cupboard area for belongings to be stored. Parents are free to communicate with the lesson Progress Advisor regarding their child’s progress. SwimEasy has sole use of the pool facilities during its Lesson Programmes.
