Reported Speech question

I would be more inclined to say:

1-He told me he would go tot he pool

    (you don't need 'has,' because the indefinite past is already implied by 'told')

      alternate example: I was sick, so he BROUGHT me flowers last week

   

2-He had told me he would go to school

    (This is correct, but unlike sentence one, the use of the word 'had' implies a more specific instance in      which he told you where he was going)

      alternate example: He HAD BROUGHT me flowers when I was sick.
