Free swimming for Primary School children this February break

Edinburgh Leisure are  happy to announce that thanks to funding from the City of Edinburgh Council, the free swimming initiative will be on offer again at all Edinburgh Leisure pools from 14th to 22nd February (inclusive). Primary School children can swim for free during Public Swim sessions. Remember that children under 5 swim for free all year round at every Edinburgh Leisure pool.

Plan ahead

The earlier you get there the more fun you can have; we recommend arriving no later than half an hour before the Public Swim session’s finish time. It’s important that children are safe whilst in the swimming pools. To make sure they enjoy their swim time and stay safe, our normal adult/child ratios will be observed. These are:
•    Under 5 years old: one adult to one child (with or without armbands), or one adult to two children with armbands
•    5 to 8 years old: one adult to two children (with or without armbands)
•    Mixed ages: one adult to one child under five with armbands, and one 5 – 8 years old (with or without armbands)
•    Over 9 years old: children can use the swimming pool on their own

As always, if you have any queries contact the centre on the number listed. We hope you stay active over the holidays and enjoy your swim!
