March 2022!!

Oh my how have we got here already!! So for the those eagle eyes, I have condensed this page down a little! I don’t think we need too many reminders of the events of 2020!! 2 years on we are still keeping one another safe and being careful in our approach to life and swimming! 

Protocols of one way systems, limited spectators & adjusted lesson times have been suspended. Full clean downs before, during and after lessons are still happening. The risk assessments are checked at least ONCE a week fo ensure I am doing as much as I can to keep you all safe, swimming toys get full ‘detox’ baths in betwee lessons to keep them as hygienic as possible.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact me and I will help!

 

September 2021

How is it September already?! All my little swimmers who are now my BIG swimmers I hope your first weeks at school have been good!

A few reminders:

* Shoes off and not be to put back on until the exit door on the mat.

* No talc to be used on site

* All nappies (swim nappies too) must be taken home to be disposed of.

Now we are back to general changing areas, please remember your masks before you swim when moving about around the swimming pool. 
We are currently still in the one way system and as soon as Harry's changes this I will let you know. Hopefully before it gets too cold!
Each family can bring one adult spectator to sit on the side to watch and enjoy, children that are poolside too please try and keep them with you at all times.

Our long overdue photoshoot is booked for October 31st when Stuart travels to see us to take the best pictures you will ever see! This is open to all our swimmers as well as outside swimmers so please feel free to share!

Our October term is open for booking, you will notice we are having a break at half term as many of us are enjoying a bit of time seeing friends and family now more have been vaccinated and the whole official shielding programme has now ended. A pre-warning.... I am going to FINLAND in December to see SANTA, so make sure you are well behaved because I will tell him!

July 2021

 

I have had confirmation from Harry's Hydro that for now they are keep ALL their procedures in place for the time being. 
 

This means the following is still happening:

*Masks must be worn whilst inside Harry's 

*Shoes to come off at the one way entrance and NOT to go back on until the carpet foyer on exit. (Shoes should be stored in a bag whilst on site)

*All nappies must go home and not be placed in our bins

*All 5 changing pods will still continue 

 

However the following changes are happening:

* One spectator per family can attend to watch the lesson and help change little one after lessons. Masks and shoes must be respected.

*The best teacher in the world is back in the pool! Oh sorry guys I mean me... 😁

*Hi-Fives ARE BACK! 
*Singing is officially back! (you rebels)

I have spoken to Larkrise and hope to have some positive news from September onwards; they have been super busy with rebranding, merging 3 schools together, restructuring AND a pandemic AND let’s not forget looking after some of our most vulnerable people in our community. A massive well done to the new SilverWood team and I cannot wait to be working with you in the future. 
 

I have spoken to Harry’s about availability on an evening during August for some late swims, so keep your eyes peeled!

 

Our rent a nappy cover scheme is up and running; this saves you the hassle of buying the correct size and changing the sizes via retailers when I carry a stock of different sizes and charge a small rental & hire fee and take the stress out of it! If you would like to sign up or know more, let me know! Limited spaces available as I like to make sure I have plenty of stock AND have a few spares for those forgetful weekends that we have as parents!

 

I have had LOTS of interest in joining our direct booking club, where I take the stress out of termly booking - If you are interested in signing up for the next academic year of swimming please let me know! I had a list… and popped it in that ‘safe place’ 

 

Please do feel free to write a review on our Google reviews / Facebook reviews as this helps other people know if we are the right swim school for them, I am so thankful for any feedback and all feedback helps me grow and do better! 

 

Finally a MASSIVE thank you to you ALL, for swimming with me through the last 18 months and the pandemic of a lifetime (fingers crossed) without all your words, smiling faces and splashing feet I wouldn’t be here to keep doing the best job in the world. 

 

If our journey has come to an end, please remember I am always here to know how amazing you are doing at school from year 1 and beyond.  I love to celebrate all your achievements with you so please drop me a message ANY time, some of you I have been teaching for too many years and it’s a very sad end to an era! (Always be invited back to Christmas parties!) 

 

May / June 2021

We are onto our second course since lockdown as eased, we are still not fully open in all areas but we are getting closer each and every day. 

Still at the moment we are not allowed any spectators, the only people pool side are parents that are swimming their children in back to back lessons for safety reasons of the children.

If on the 21st June more restrictions lift and change this will be reflected as soon as possible.  Our July course by this time will be booked and ready to begin, I will make any changes immediately if possible but so,e may roll into our September course.

Please don't forget to pop your shoes into a bag when entering and not put them back on until you are in the porch matted area on leaving. 

All nappies MUST go home with you, the bin is provided for the wipes you are using to clean your pods before and after use. Please also remember no food, drinks or Talc powder / creams can be used at Harry's.

I hope you are enjoying your lessons, don't forget you can review us on google as well as social media pages.
