Swimming Pool Rules – Important Notice for Parents with Children Under 16 years
You will be aware of the dangers inherent in swimming pools and therefore will also appreciate the need for rules and safety procedures which must be followed and enforced at all times. These rules are expected by Health and Safety Authorities to be in place and acted on and we face closure if they are not.

Please read the following very carefully and make sure that your children are aware of them. Some of them apply to Adults too!! We will unfortunately have to end all use of the swimming pool if your children do not appear to be properly supervised at all times.

  1. Children under 16 must be accompanied at all times by a responsible adult.
  2. Children must always be in sight of the adult responsible.
  3. The responsible adult may supervise no more than 3 children at once.
  4. In the case of non-swimming children they must always be within arms reach and have one adult per child.
  5. It is not acceptable for the supervising adult to be engrossed in reading or any other activity or in any area other than the immediate surroundings of the pool.
  6. Running, diving, jumping, bombing etc. are not allowed.
  7. No glass or crockery is allowed in the pool area.
  8. The sides of the pool surrounding the deep end slope steeply – there is a picture of the pool profile on the wall – please take the time to familiarize yourself and any children you are responsible for with it.
  9. Inflatables of reasonable size are allowed but we do ask that other pool users be considered when using them.
  10. The pool doors must be kept locked at all times when not in use. Keys are on your cottage key ring.
  11. The entrance doors must be kept shut at all times while the pool is in use – we can be closed down by Health and Safety if they find open access to our swimming pool
  12. No one may use the pool alone.
  13. No smoking is allowed in the pool or the surrounding area

It might appear that we would rather that children did not have fun in our pool but we can assure you that this is not the case. For years children have had a great time swimming at Glynn Barton and we do wish it to continue – SAFELY!
