Barnardo's Star Breaks at Witney (Holiday Club Provision)

Barnardo's logo

Barnardo's star breaks offer holiday club provision for 5-18 year olds within Springfield School in Witney.  Our activities are designed for children and young people with complex physical and/or learning disabilities. We provide a safe and comfortable space for them to enjoy spending time with their friends, encouraging social skills and time to relax whilst having fun. We cater for the younger age range as well as ensuring older children have access to activities that they would enjoy as teenagers.  Your child does not have to attend this school to access our service.
