PARENTS at the school who spoke to the Mail suggested they did not mind where their children were taught to swim as long as they were supervised by staff at all times.

Rachel Taylor, who lives in the Throston area, said she believed the youngsters should be offered some privacy at their swimming lessons instead of sharing the pool with members of the public.

The 28-year-old, whose daughter attends Throston Primary School, said: “They should really have some privacy I suppose but it doesn’t bother me really as long as they’re being watched.

“As long as they’ve got people keeping an eye on them in the water then that’s ok.”

One mum, whose children attend the school, said the issue of sharing a pool with other members of the public did not bother her.

The 43-year-old, who did not wish to be named, said: “I’m not really bothered as long as they’re supervised. I suppose if family members take them swimming they’re in there with members of the public so I don’t suppose it matters if they’re having school swimming lessons in a pool shared with other people.

“As long as they’re getting swimming lessons then I don’t really care where they have them.”

Another unnamed mum, whose son attends the school, said she was just grateful her child was getting swimming lessons.

The 29-year-old said: “As long as he’s learning to swim I’m not greatly concerned.

“I suppose it’s up to the school where they go so if they think leaving Mill House is best then I’d support them.”
