Barnett Wood Infant School



In the summer term the children swim in our own heated outdoor pool, we have qualified instructors and we pride ourselves that all children have water confidence and are able to swim by the time they leave the school. 

The children swim twice a week (30 min lessons) from mid-May to the end of the summer term which works out at approximately 18 swimming lessons throughout the term and depending on weather for a couple of weeks into the autumn term. We only ask you to contribute £55 (per child) which is just over £3.00 per lesson!
We are also hoping to provide some after school sessions for all year groups, and at the end of term the children will have a fun swim with their class.

We are hopeful that all our parents will contribute so that we can pay the teachers and continue to improve the wonderful facility available to our school community. In the last few years we have replaced the changing rooms roof, replaced the heat exchanger, installed under floor heating and we replaced the thermal pool cover.

Parent Volunteers

We can't run our pool without the help of parent volunteers. We have 3 teams each year that oversee the maintenance and supervision during Swim Scheme sessions. Please see the presentation below for more information.

Family Summer Swim Scheme



Our Summer Swim Scheme is an opportunity for all families of Barnett Wood to make the most of the pool during weekends during term time from June and all over the school holidays. Enjoy a swim with the family as many times as you want, for a one off payment. Our parents run and organise the Swim Scheme which also raises vital funds to keep the swimming pool running. This information pack sets out all you need to know about joining the scheme and also details of how to book the pool for private hire (parties).

Please see the brochure below for details on how you and the family can benefit from our lovely pool throughout the summer:
