Barnett Wood Infant School parents are in a unique position. You can join the summer swim scheme, take your toddler to a club and/or hire the pool for a children’s party up to a maximum 30 children.
Swim Scheme - The summer swim scheme is run by parent volunteers giving Barnett Wood families the chance to buy membership to use the pool on Tuesdays-Sundays throughout the summer holidays and for weekend swimming from June. It is a brilliant opportunity to raise money for the school and a great social facility for the children and their families during the holidays. The children get the chance to meet their friends and have fun in the water and on summer days it is just like being abroad and we even sell ice creams!
For the cost of £45* you get a membership which entitles your family to swim in any one of 4 organised swim sessions which run at 2, 245, 330 and 415.
Membership is for your immediate family but you can bring guests at a guest fee. The swimming is supervised by a parent from the school who has taken ﬁrst aid and pool rescue training. They are giving up their time voluntarily so please be respectful and listen to their instructions. Non-swimming children must be supervised in the pool at all times by a responsible adult. So get your membership forms in quick - the scheme can only accommodate 70 families. You wont regret it! For more info please see the 'swimming scheme brochure' further down the page.
Toddler Swim - Parent and Toddler Swimming Sessions (Mondays 2pm - 2.45pm starting on 13th June ) The Swimming Scheme is open for children with older siblings already attending Barnett Wood School and children due to start at Barnett Wood School in September. If there are any spaces available they will be offered to Barnett Wood Pre-school. There will be 6 (£20 for all 6) sessions throughout the school term starting on Monday 13th June. Its a great way to get your toddler/baby use to the water
