Helping children learn to swim

Community swim programme

Sandford Parks Lido understands the importance of children learning to swim and what dangers children can face if they do not have a the fundermantal swimming skills.

Our programme has been produced to make lessons accessible for all children through out our community. We believe that all children deserve a chance to learn to swim not only as a key life skill but also so they can access the benefits of an active life. We are looking for businesses or individuals to donate £100 to the Lido swim school.

Who is the programme for?

We are aiming the programme at children from disadvantaged backgrounds aged 4+ who do not have access to swimming lessons outside of the school curriculum.

What will £100 give to child learning to swim?

£100 will cover the cost for a child to have 8 lessons one to one swimming lessons with an experienced teacher at Sandford Parks Lido throughout the summer.  In this sequence of lessons the teachers will be looking at developing water confidence, water safety and FUNdermantal skills.

FAQ's

  • Is there parking available on site?

    We have a large car park suitable for over 150 cars which sits directly outside of the Lido. Parking fees start at £2.10 Both coins and cards are accepted and you can also pay by phone. It’s a great location if you are using the hospital, local parks or walking into Cheltenham Town Centre.

    Where possible, we encourage that you walk or cycle to the Lido. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

     

  • Do you have a refund policy if I am unable to use the pool?

    Refunds are not permitted on swim entry tickets. You will be able to transfer your swim to an alternative day or time if  you have given 24 hours notice.

    If you need assistance please email admin@sandfordparkslido.org.uk

  • Can children be left without an adult on site?

    We are committed to working with parents to create a safe environment for children.

    All children under the age of 8 should always be accompanied by a guardian aged 16 years or over, this person may be responsible for up to two children. Guardians must maintain constant supervision particularly in the water and changing rooms. We advise that children under the age of 5 should be supervised on a one-to-one basis.

    Parents have a specific responsibility for the safety of their own children, this cannot be abdicated to lifeguards. The role of the lifeguard is to maintain a safe and healthy environment for all swimmers.

  • How are queues managed on busy hot days?

    We have four queues available;

    1. One season ticket holders, who have booked,
    2. One for paying customers who have booked,
    3. One for Season ticket holders who have not booked
    4. One for paying customers who have not booked

    We allow all those who have booked onto site first and then we will allow entry to others customers who have not booked onto site.

    If we have hit site capacity, we will move to a 1-out-1-in scenario.

    *Please note Season Ticket holders who have not booked will get priority entry*
