Child Swim Supervision Guidelines
To ensure that swimming pools operated by Newport Live are as safe as possible, guidelines for the supervision of children have been implemented. The guidelines were issued by the CIMSPA (Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Activity) and are available to view on our Child Supervision guideline leaflet.
All Newport Live pools operate a hygiene and swimwear policy
