In line with the Government announcement on 27/6/21, the following applies until further notice:

In this instance, we kindly ask that you arrange for another person to bring your child or where this cannot be arranged, you mark absent. This will allow a makeup to be allocated that you can then book once mask restrictions are lifted. We thank you for your co-operation.
- Masks do not need to be worn in the water (parent/child classes) however you will continue to wear your mask as you enter the water and remove it once in the pool.
