Braes High School - Falkirk

Pool Information

Size: 20 metres x 6 lanes
Average Temperature: 28 degrees Celsius

Changing Rooms: There are separate male and female changing rooms with showers to either side of pool. The pool entrance for the children is via the changing rooms onto the poolside.

Hygiene: Our teachers really love it when children blow their noses and go to the toilet before the start of lessons. This tends to avoid any unwanted surprises and causes minimum disruption to the lessons!

Meeting Point

Children will be met by the Progress Advisor at the changing room entrance to the pool. Note that there are two entrances via both the boys and the girls changing rooms. Children will also be directed to this area at the end of the lesson. Children should assemble at the right hand side of the pool before the lesson begins and will be escorted to either the shallow end or the deep end of the pool depending on which level of class they are in.

Viewing the Pool

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. Parents are also free, during this time, to communicate with the lesson Progress Advisor regarding their child's progress. SwimEasy has sole use of the pool facilities during our Main Programme. During our one-to-one and one-to-two lessons, the pool is also open to the public meaning that parents are not allowed on poolside.
