Summer Playscheme

Come Back in 2019 for information on next year’s activities.

Play scheme is coming soon! 

The Habilitation Team (formerly Mobility) are now planning this year’s summer activity scheme. It will run from 23rd July 2018 – 27th July 2018  at Priestley Smith School, but it is open to visually impaired pupils from schools across the city. Places are available to visually impaired pupils from school years 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 (other pupils at the discretion of the Habilitation Service). The scheme has only a limited number of places and they are being offered on a first come, first serve basis

If your child would like to attend this years play scheme please return their initial forms by no later than mid June 2018 to secure a place. Remaining forms and payment must be made before the end of term. There will be a charge of £10.00 per day, to include transport for your child. If you are able to transport your child to and from home the cost will be reduced to £5.00 per day.

This information relates to last year and will be updated shortly.

Activities will take place between 10.00am and 2.00pm each day unless otherwise stated.
