Saturday club

We run a Saturday Club for children aged 3-11 with additional needs and their siblings. The club is run at Castle Wood School where we have full use of the excellent facilities. Activities include swimming, soft play, messy play, art, sensory activities and outdoor play.

The hours are 10am - 3pm. Parents provide their child with a packed lunch and no transport is provided.

We have received funding from Children in Need to continue to run our Saturday Club for the next three years. We are funded for 20 Saturday Club's per school year, which run mostly every other week during term time. Due to the funding we have been able to reduce our fees to £15 per session.

When applying for the funding we had to specify three outcomes which we wanted to achieve. The chosen outcomes we are working on at Saturday Club are:

  • Happier children 
  • Improved communication 
  • Greater independence 

Unfortunately Saturday Club is full and we have an extensive waiting list, however if you would like to be added to the waiting list or if you would like more information please contact Emma at:
