Re: Saturday Morning Fun Pool sessions at Oak Field School
We are opening our shallow warm water pool (max depth: 1.3 metres) on four Saturday mornings in June/July. We hope this will be helpful especially for our pupils who have limited mobility, for whom the warm water and calm, sensory environment will be beneficial. The cost is £3.25 per person.
There will be a ‘spotter’/First Aider at the side of the pool, but no lifeguard or medical/ health support staff on site. Parents will be responsible for the safety of their own child(ren), and must bring with them any medication/oxygen/health equipment that their child might need. If your child usually wears continence pads, they will need to wear swim pants in the pool – please see attached information re Incy Wincy products.
We are offering a choice of 2 sessions: 10am-11am, or 11am-12 noon – the changing rooms will be open from 9.30am-12.30pm.
The dates are:
If you would like to attend any or all of these sessions, please return the attached slip as soon as possible, since places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Payment must be made in advance, by the Thursday before the session, and can be made online via the School Gateway (this is our preferred option), or in cash.
If you need to cancel a booking for any reason, please let us know by the Thursday before the swim, so that we can allocate the place/s to another family.
We very much look forward to seeing you at the pool!
