Beechcliffe School ran its first holiday club last summer and it was a great success.
It was fully subscribed throughout its opening period and was thoroughly enjoyed by pupils and I dare say parents also enjoyed the much earned time off!!
We are just in the process of planning this year’s scheme but last year, it ran for 5 hours per day for 8 days of the summer holidays.
Like the afterschool club there was a very high staff to student ratio and school trained staff were present at all sessions for all routine and emergency medical procedures.
Staff were extremely dedicated in making sure that all the sessions could be ran efficiently and safely.
These sessions were very much student led with something for everybody.
Over the two weeks, we had visiting farms, dance instructors, games teams, sports teams and a giant indoor inflatable.
We organised tournaments and races, ran music, rebound and sensory sessions and much much more, all finished off with an end of scheme disco and party.
It gave parents and carers the opportunity of a few hours to themselves with complete peace of mind that their child was safe and having fun.
