Photography is permitted and you will be asked when you sign up online if you are happy to consent to photography. Photography is limited to the last week of term to prevent disruption to the lessons. Any swimwear you've ordered will be waiting for you on poolside or posted to you. On your first day, it is useful if you can turn up at least 15 minutes in advance of your class as it is a good time for your teacher to check nappy fittings,change sizes as required and to be available for the Covid-19 briefing. There is some specialist equipment on the poolside , please keep hold of your children and make sure they do not play with this equipment. The floors can get slippery too so take care with young children.

Children need to wear two nappies at all times unless succesfully potty trained for at least one year as accidents can still happen long after potty training.
The two types are an under nappy specific to swimming which can be disposable or reusable and an over nappy which must have tight legs and waist to prevent leakage! A swimming costume is not necessary.
Depending on your little ones age, due to Covid-19, you will need as a minimum a changing mat and then for older babies/toddlers a toy, woggle and sinker due to the restrictions around sharing kit at this time.
