Summer Holiday Club
Meadowside School usually offers two weeks of Summer Holiday Club, at the end of the school year.
Subject to funding from the Department for Education and via the Holiday Activity Fund, we intend to offer a Summer Club from Wednesday July 21st to Tuesday 3rd August 2021 inclusive. The Holiday Club will operate from 9am to 3pm Monday to Fridays. This means that, dependent upon the demand for places and a risk assessment, your child could have the opportunity of a maximum of 10 days at the Summer Club.
Activities during the 10 days will depend upon the Covid-19 restrictions in place at the time. We would hope to be able to offer some off-site trips such as the cinema, crazy golf, sensory/soft play area etc. . On-site activities will include Music, games (indoor and outdoor), sports including swimming, cooking/ baking, model-making, Wii games, ICT, arts and crafts, yoga and relaxation, beauty therapy and cinema time (on one of our large screens). We will also be offering pupils the opportunity to catch up on some learning they have missed due to Covid-19 restrictions this year.
In previous years the funding available has meant that parents/carers have had to contribute £15/day towards the costs of the club. We are hopeful, that given the Covid related funding that is available from DFE this year, we may not have to ask for any parental contribution this year. We will confirm this as soon as we are able to.
As Covid-19 restrictions have limited the opportunity for pupils who are joining us in September 2021 to visit us, we would also like to invite parents/carers of our new pupils to express an interest in our Summer Club so they can get to know some staff members, other pupils and begin to find their way around our school and grounds, as well as have a lot of fun!
A letter has been sent to parents/carers of new pupils who have confirmed that they will be joining us in September. A letter and expression of interest form for parents and carers of existing pupils will be sent home the week commencing 17th May 2021. Please contact the School Office on 678 7711 should you wish to discuss further.
