Q: DOES THE POOL HAVE A LIFEGUARD?
Dave Walsh, Headteacher
A: No. Schools may supervise using their own suitably qualified staff, or we may be able to hire in a local lifeguard on a per-session basis. The majority of schools have risk assessed the pool facility and allow its use under staff supervision.
