RLC Sensory Sessions Webpage Hero 2

For ages 4 to 13, and any customers with sensory needs who wish to attend.

Kick off their weekend with their very own pool party at our fun, upbeat kids aqua disco!

Their very own disco inferno in our heated learner pool, kids can socialise, splash and dance to the latest tracks, jump around in our bubble jets and sing along to their favourite songs under our flashing-coloured lights and disco ball.

With loud music, wall jets, bubblers and fun toys including pool floats and noodles, inflatable toys, watering cans and balls, they can float, dance, splash and play to their heart’s content in this fun and active session. Bring your best dance moves!

We use flashing lights in this session, meaning it may not be suitable for those with epilepsy.

How to book

You can:

The person making the booking must have an ourChelmsford account to book.

  • Our pool changing area is on the ground floor with level access from entrance through to the pool.
  • We have a Changing Places unit, an accessible changing room and an accessible toilet in our ground floor changing area.
  • Our learner pool has a short set of easy access steps into the pool, with hand rails both sides.
  • We do not have a pool pod or accessible lift into this pool so participants need to be able to get into pool unaided, or with assistance from parents, guardians or carers.


To keep everyone safe, we operate adult to child ratios and maximum capacity at our swimming pools. 

Children that are seven years and under can’t use the pool by themselves.  

A person 16 years or over can accompany: 

  • one child that is under four years 
  • two children that are under four years if they are wearing buoyancy aids, such as armbands or a float suit 
  • two children that are between four and seven years

Swim nappies

Children who usually wear nappies, must wear a swim nappy in the pool. You can purchase these from reception for £1.70 each.

Baby changing

The group changing areas have baby changing facilities available. 

Booking is essential. We will then issue wristbands on arrival.

  • There are individual cubicles, a male group changing area and a female group changing area.
  • A Changing Places area and accessible changing facilities are available.
  • If you want to use a locker, you will need a £1 coin to release the key. You will get the £1 back when you return the key.  


The pools complex, including the changing area, is a shoe-free zone. This includes flip flops.
