Handover Procedure for Swimming Lessons
We are introducing a handover process for swimming lessons effective SEPTEMBER 3rd 2018, to further enhance the safety of your child within the aquatic environment, ensuring there are no supervision gaps when your child starts and finishes their swimming lesson.
What do I need to do?
- Start of lesson: Come to the edge of the pool where your lesson begins and directly handover your child to their teacher.
- End of lesson: Come to the edge of the pool where your lesson is and collect your child directly from their teacher.
- Children aged 10 years and over: Handover at your discretion using your knowledge of your child’s swimming ability and general development (as per Watch Around Water supervision guidelines).
The safety of your child is our first priority. Without a handover process, at the end of a lesson, excited children go in all different directions making it extremely difficult for your teacher to ensure that your child has returned to you safely. We appreciate and value your support.
