SAFETY ISN’T JUST FOR SUMMER

SAFETY ISN’T JUST FOR SUMMER cover

While summer may be shortly coming to a close, our vigilance when it comes to pool supervision shouldn’t be. It’s easy to get complacent after months of long days lounging by the pool, but it only takes a momentary lapse in concentration for accidents to happen.

To assist parents and guardians understand how to best protect young and inexperienced swimmers our team has a Supervision Policy that is enforced at all of the Newcastle Pools facilities. The policy details the level of supervision required for each of the children in your care.

So, what are our Supervision Policies?

The staff of Newcastle Pools will be enforcing the following rules:

  • Any child aged 0 to 5 years old MUST remain within arms reach to their parent/guardian. To represent this your child will receive a yellow wristband. This wristband MUST remain on them for the entire duration of your visit.
  • Children aged 6 to 10 years old MUST have a parent or guardian who stays close, is alert and maintains visual contact at ALL times.
  • 11 to 12 year olds must have a parent or guardian who maintains visual contact at ALL times.
  • Anyone over the age of 13 years old may enter the aquatic facility unsupervised.
  • The adult to child ratio for this facility is 1:2 (one adult to two children).

You can find full details on our website.

It is important that our families understand that the supervision policy has been implemented for the safety of everyone, and that we all have a role to play. Together we can help keep the local community safe!

We thank you for your understanding and look forward to a safe season filled with fun!
