Swimbrite Swimming School Covid-19 Parent Guidance
Welcome back to our lessons, during these unprecedented times we have put together a guidance document for lessons during Covid-19. Please note there is information in the below document on both the Village Hotel and the Mercure Parkway
Swimbrite Covid-19 Officer
Hannah is the Covid-19 Officer for Swimbrite Swimming School. She is the key contact for all matters Covid-19 for the club and will be responsible for liaising with teachers, parents and our venues in relation to the Swim Schools response to Covid-19. She hopes to promote clear and effective communication channels and ensure all members feel supported and have someone to go to should they have any questions or concerns.
Entering the Venue (Village Hotel - Headingley)
The Venue will be entered by the main reception as normal. Please follow social distancing measures when walking down to Leisure
Children must all arrive ‘Beach Ready’ no more than 5 minutes prior to your lesson start time. You will have your temperature taken by a member of the Village staff and you are required to scan your membership card to register your attendance. Please note should anyone’s temperature read above 37.5 degrees they will not be allowed to enter the swimming lesson and will automatically loose the session.
Please enter the poolside via the family changing rooms ONLY. Please maintain social distancing whilst walking through the family changing rooms. Markers are set out on the floor as a visual aid or where to stand. We ask that everyone washes their hands before the lessons and after the lessons.
Once on poolside there will be clear markings for the parent/guardian to stay whilst observing the lesson. If siblings attend parents can wait at the other side of the pool (next to jacuzzi) or leave through the main changing room and sit in Starbucks. If you are leaving poolside you must in good time before the lesson ends to allow a smooth handover.
When you enter poolside you will see the pool will be split into 4 sections. Each section will be marked with 2M distance spots to give the children a visual aid as to where they should sit either side of the pool.
Parent waiting areas have been designated and labelled on poolside, it is crucial that parents remain in these areas if staying on poolside and do not walk around.
Please ensure that children arrive to each lesson with the full set of equipment. They will not be allowed to enter the lesson should they not have it. NO EQUIPMENT CAN BE BORROWED
Exiting the pool
Children should be sent back to their parents/ guardian one at a time and if the parent has left poolside please ensure they have returned. The parent should not be collecting the child and should not be in close proximity to the poolside.
Please note that no contact can be made on poolside unless it is crucial. Please ensure any communication is made via the office. This avoids putting both staff and parents at risk.
Please appreciate it is an extremely busy time and the office staff have lots of teaching to do. If we are unavailable, please leave a message and we will always get back to you as soon as possible.
You must leave poolside as quickly as possible, exit through the main changing rooms and remember to wash your hands after the lesson
Changing facilities and leaving the venue
Entering the Venue (Mercure Parkway)
The venue is to be entered via the main reception of the leisure club. Please ensure you follow all one way systems when walking around the club. You will enter via the poolside door so we ask that your child arrives ‘beach ready’. You will be required to sign a track and trace form and have your temperature taken. Please note if yours or child’s temperature reads above 37.5 degrees you will be asked to leave and your child will not be able to participate in the lesson.
Poolside Set up and Exiting the venue (Mercure Parkway)
When on poolside there are select areas for parents to sit and watch the lesson. Please remain seated in this are throughout the duration of the lesson. The children will be placed on a coloured marker on poolside to help them social distance within the pool.
Once lessons are over you will exit through the changing rooms and you are welcome to use both the shower and changing facilities.
•We advise wearing a facemask / face covering during your time entering the building and on poolside for your own safety.
