Swim Scheme COVID-19 Guidance April 2022

With the removal of most Covid-19 restrictions we have reviewed our risk assessment in line with information we have received from Swim England and the Royal Lifesaving Society.

The care of our staff and customers remains our priority and we will continue to ensure that we are working as safely as possible to minimise the risks.  When we return to swimming in April 2022 we will retain a number of measures to help reduce the risks and we ask for your co-operation.  These additional measures should be viewed alongside our normal terms and conditions.

To ensure the health and safety of all involved with the Swim Scheme please read the notes below:


  • No one should attend lessons if they have a positive COVID-19 test
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperatures should stay at home and avoid contact with other people
  • Adults with symptoms of a respiratory infection and who have a high temperature or feel unwell should try to stay at home

Social Distancing

Whilst the Government has removed the need for social distancing, anyone coming on to the Summerhill School site will be encouraged to respect other users and their space, being mindful that some people may not be as comfortable with the lifting of restrictions as others.


Mitie, the facility management company will provide a cleaning programme in accordance with current guidance

Changing Rooms

We need to make the time spent in the changing room as short as possible to minimise the risks.

  • Arrive 'swim ready' with swimwear already on underneath easily removable clothing
  • Only one parent/carer per swimmer permitted
  • Users should vacate the changing room as quickly as possible

Swimming Lessons

  • Spectators are allowed on to the poolside provided that there is room to sit on the bench
  • Only one parent/carer should attend
  • Please access the bench from the changing room down the right side of the pool

The above information is subject to change in line with any updated guidance that we receive.
