All BPL Swimming Pools
The safety of non-swimmers* and children is the responsibility of the supervising adult in attendance at all times. When supervising, the adult must maintain a constant watch over the children and be in close contact with those that are weak or non-swimmers*. All children under the age of 8 must be accompanied in the water by a responsible adult (at least 16 years old). Children under 4 years must be accompanied by a responsible person on a 1:1 basis. An adult cannot be responsible for supervising more than two under 8's. All non-swimmers must wear armbands unless closely supervised on a one-to-one basis by an adult who can swim. Those wearing armbands are restricted to the designated shallow areas at all times (except during BPL's swimming lesson scheme). The definition of ability to swim is defined as the capacity to swim a recognised stroke unaided for a minimum of 50 metres (2 lengths) and tread water for a minimum of 1 minute. In order that lifeguards can effectively monitor the supervision policy, customers may be asked to demonstrate their swimming ability – we are grateful for your co-operation in helping us to assure your safety. During unstructured swimming sessions, a responsible person cannot enter the pool with more than 2 children who are under 8 years old. During the pool inflatable sessions children under 8 years old will be accompanied in the water on a 1:1 basis. Masks, flippers and snorkels are not allowed into the pool during public swimming sessions. Swimmers, parents or guardians are to advise pool staff on arrival of any illness or disability that may affect them. Persons who appear to be under the influence of drink or drugs will not be allowed to enter the water or take part in activities.
