10/09/2020 Rule of six
Sport England – While social gatherings of more than six people will be banned in England from 14 September, the government’s confirmed that organised sports and activities that have been through return to play protocols can continue, as can organised outdoor sports and physical activity events such as park run, which is due to return next month.
People can also continue to use leisure facilities, including gyms and pools – classes within these venues can continue as they are now. People should not go to these venues socially in groups of more than six.
I am absolutely delighted to say NSB Stage 4-10 re-enrolment emails have all gone out and we cannot wait to see you all again!!! ⭐ Please help us by confirming if you want your Wizard(s) to join us again by replying to your email no later than 05/09, after which time, spaces will be made available to our waiting list. We are still working with NSG on a return date, an email update was sent out yesterday 😁 Check your spam folder if you have not received anything! 👻 Thank you all for your continued support ⭐🧙
A HUGE thank you for all your lovely positive messages of support! I have always said we unashamedly operate a safety-first policy at Water Wizards, and this takes a little extra time and training. Behind the scenes we are still busy implementing all the Covid secure guidelines to ensure a safe return to swimming at NSG and NSB
I am pleased to say those who swim with us at NSB will get an email later this week with information about how Phase 1 of our Covid secure swimming lessons will work. Those who swim with us at NSG will need to wait a little bit longer until our Phase 1 plans have been agreed by the school. Stay safe and we hope to see you all soon!
After Thursdays Government announcement, we are absolutely delighted to finally have some positive news about a return to swimming! 😍 Over the last few months, we have attended numerous webinars, zoom meetings and online training courses to better prepare for a safe return and we cannot wait to see you all again! ⭐
For now, we know things won’t be the same as before but rest assured, our commitment to putting safety above everything else is now stronger than ever. As always, you can continue to trust us to go above and beyond any guidelines necessary for a covid-secure environment. Once finalised, we will gladly share with you our full risk assessments, enhanced cleaning regimes, new pool procedures and our plans for a phased return to give you full confidence in our ability to keep everyone safe.
I’m sure other swim schools and leisure facilities will be rushing to start back and from all your messages, a lot of Wizards really want to get back too (and so do we!) but our intention is to take a cautious and measured approach. Working closely with our partners at NSG and NSB our aim is to start back after the summer holidays, giving swimmers enough time to settle back into school life first. More information will follow over the summer so keep an eye out for further emails.
Finally, thank you for all your supportive messages, pictures, and patience over the last few months. keep safe and we will see you all again soon. Zoe everyone at Water Wizards Swim School ⭐🧙
Considering the statement made by the Government concerning the coronavirus and “non-essential contact with others” it is with regret that we are suspending all our lessons with immediate effect. We will continue when it is considered safe for all our Wizards, Parents/Guardians and staff to do so. See your emails for further details. As a small local business, we thank you for your continued loyalty and support at this very difficult time and ask that you keep safe and follow all relevant guidance. Zoe and all the Team at Water Wizards Swim School.

Re: Coronavirus (COVID-19)
We continue to follow current guidance issued by the government and NHS and ask all Parents/Guardians to do the same. If you have been in contact with someone with coronavirus or have returned from an affected area and you are feeling unwell with a cough, difficulty breathing or fever, stay at home and use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service or call NHS 111.
Public Health England recommends that the following general cold and flu precautions are taken to help prevent people from catching and spreading coronavirus:
Wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds (See hand washing guidance).
Always wash your hands when you get home or into work.
Use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze.
Put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards.
Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.
If you are worried about symptoms, please call NHS 111. Do not go to your GP, other healthcare environment or attend lessons.
Thank you for your cooperation.
