   COVID-19 SAFETY PRACTICES AND REGULATIONS

   Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, H20 Swim Fitness are taking every precaution to ensure the safety of our staff,         

   swimmers and accompanying adults.  We have put into place the following additional practices;

  • Upon every attendance of lessons, all swimmers will have their temperature taken on entrance to the pool premises. Should a swimmer record a high temperature they will not be allowed to enter the premises and must return home and we would recommend that as good practice parents contact NHS 111 for additional guidance

  • Swimmers will be required to sanitise their hands on entering and exiting the pool premises.

  • A child and/or accompanying adult must NOT attend any of our sessions if showing any of the symptons for COVID-19.  Should anyone who has attended lessons (both swimmers & adults or anyone from their household) later show symptoms of COVID-19, they must contact H20 Swim Fitness ltd to enable the track and trace scheme for wider testing to be carried out where appropriate.

  • Swimmers and accompanying adults MUST abide by the one way systems and all additional practices put into place to ensure safety of all.

  • Swimmers are expected to listen carefully to instructions and present themselves in a manner suitable to the current situation with COVID-19. Failure for swimmers to abide by rules may result in them being removed from sessions.

  • Teachers CANNOT, under government guidance and that of Swim England, currently enter the pool during teaching and we have made all parents aware of this situation. Teachers will be vigilant as always from the pool edge and will use an assistance stick if necessary to assist swimmers to the pool edge, whilst still ensuring social distancing measures. Should it become necessary for a teacher to enter the water for the safety of a swimmer they will do so which will not therefore be inline with social distancing rules.

  • Only one parent must accompany swimmers to lessons.

  • In the unlikely event of a child needing to be rescued from the pool, the parent/accompanying adult must authorise in advance, that in the current circumstances, they are happy for a member of H20 Swim Fitness to enter the water and assist their child which may result in reduced social distancing.

  • All swimmers and parents are expected to play their part to ensuring this for all h20 members and staff: 

TERMS

  • We run in 3 full terms:

    • September to December

    • January to March / April

  • 3-4 weeks before the end of the current term, details for the next term are issued including term dates and total fees. 

  • To secure places for the next term a £40 booking payment per child is required.

  • The booking payment is non-refundable.

  • In cases such as the long term closure of pool lettings, pandemics, and any other reasons why H20 cannot operate a normal service, booking fees will be rolled over for a period of 2 terms for the return to lessons.  After this time the booking fee will be forfeited by the payee in line with our non-refundable terms above.

  • The FINAL deadline for booking payments will be detailed in the new term email.

  • Failure to secure places by the final deadline with the £40 booking payment, WILL result in your child’s place being offered to someone on the waiting list for the new term.

REFUNDS

 

  • We do not offer a refund for missed sessions due to absence / holidays / illnesses or any circumstances outside of our control.

  • If your child suffers a significant injury (broken limb / hospitalisation) which means they cannot be in the pool for more than a 4 week period please discuss this with us.

  • Where a session is cancelled by H20 Swim Fitness Ltd due to an issue on site, in the first instance, we will do our best to make up for this session by offering an alternative session and/or venue to attend or by extending lessons in the same term.  Where an alternative has been offered their will not be monetary refund.

  • Where a session is cancelled due to weather conditions, environmental issues, etc a refund will NOT be provided.
