Published on: Friday, 23-May-2014

The state-of-the-art, accessible facilities at Bluebell Park School in Kirkby are now available for community use for disabled children and young people at special sessions during the summer months.

Knowsley Leisure and Culture Services are managing the sessions at the school’s fully accessible swimming pool. The sessions will be open to families with disabled children/young people and will take place on:

  • Saturday 31st May / Saturday 26th July
  • Saturday 14th June / Saturday 2nd August
  • Saturday 21st June / Saturday 9th August
  • Saturday 28th June / Saturday 16th August
  • Saturday 12th July / Saturday 23rd August
  • Saturday 19th July / Saturday 30th August

What will happen on the day

9.30am - doors open

9.30-10.00 - signing in and getting changed

10.00-11.45: pool use

11.45-12.30: getting changed and signing out

The cost of the sessions is £10 for families ( 2 adults/2 children), £4 Adults, and £2.60 children (pay on the day). Places are limited due to the capacity of the pool.

Two qualified lifeguards will be on site helping support and encourage all children and young people. The lifeguards will be experienced and have up to date CRB/DBS. There will also be a receptionist signing in/out, collecting payment and answering any questions you might have.

This project will allow families, disabled children and young people, aged five-21-years-old to access 1 hour 45 minutes of enjoyment within a heated pool in a familiar, safe environment. Sessions in the school’s hydro therapy pool can also be booked. The capacity for this pool is a maximum of six people per session, with bookings taken on a first come, first served basis.
