Child Protection Policy

KA Leisure has ‘signed up’ to the 2006 Accord for Protection of Children in Sport which reinforces the Company’s commitment to provide a suitable and safe environment for children to participate in physical activity and sport.
This is a new initiative through a partnership of Children 1st and sportscotland to support organisations in developing provisions for the protection of children.
A copy of the KA Leisure Child Protection Policy and the 2006 Accord for Protection of Children in Sport is available by clicking on the links below.

Child Protection Policy

Child Protection Accord

Swimming Pool Child Admission Policy

Purpose

The purpose of the Child Admission Policy is to safeguard the group of pool users who are most at risk i.e. young children.

It is not intended to stop children having fun and enjoying swimming, nor is it intended to make life difficult for parents/carers.

These guidelines are designed to be applied under normal circumstances and may be adjusted to accommodate periods of high bather loads e.g. Aqua Fun sessions.

  • A responsible adult of at least sixteen years of age must accompany all children under the age of eight and/ or any non swimmers in the water at all times.
  • Children who are non or weak swimmers must wear armbands or other approved buoyancy aids while in the water.
  • Children under 4 years of age must normally be accompanied in the water by a responsible adult on a one to one basis. The exception to this is that two children under the age of 4 years of age (whether swimmers or non swimmers) may be accompanied by one responsible adult providing both children are wearing armbands or other suitable buoyancy aids and access is restricted to the teaching pool.
  • Children aged between 4 and 7 must normally be accompanied in the water by a responsible adult on a maximum two to one basis. Again, the exception to this is that three children aged between 4 and 7 may be accompanied by one responsible adult providing all the children wear armbands or other suitable buoyancy aids or can demonstrate a level of swimming competence in the water.
