*Following Covid-19 we've yet to have confirmation from Ysgol Y Deri as to when we can resume lessons.* [Updated 16.08.2021]
(Next to St Cyres School) Ysgol Y Deri is a public special school. It hosts state of the art classrooms, facilities & of course their own Hydrotherapy Pool. The pool appears small initially but by benefiting from the warmth it makes for very intimate classes.
Address:Ysgol Y Deri, Sully Road, Penarth, CF64 2XP
We ask parents, if possible to leave Push chairs/buggy’s in their cars, as they are not allowed inside the changing rooms so will have to be stored at your risk in the hallway. Spectators are allowed & there are several chairs on poolside for friends/family.
Parking: Ample free parking located at the school.
Changing rooms: The changing facilities are very limited & not ideal for babies, so please do take care. There are only 4 changing areas but additionally there is 2 shower rooms & 2 accessible toilets which can be used for changing. Please make use of all spaces so as not to delay yourself & others. The safest place to change your baby is on the floor and we recommend bringing your own changing mat with you. However for convenience when getting yourself changed, we will provide a travel cot. The school require that everyone has a shower before entering the pool so if you could please respect the school's wishes. Also all shoes will have to be removed before entering the changing rooms. On occasion there will be shoe covers, but if they are not available please remove your shoes. There is also toilets available.
Where possible, having your little one already in their swimming gear can help a lot.
