We are planning to open July 27th-August 21st   Mondays- Fridays 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. for 8 - 13 year olds

We will be running a first come first served basis for 30 children each day - so getting in one day does not guarantee getting in the next day (After a week we will look again at the numbers)

It will be run out of doors at the playground with groups probably of 5 or 6 working together

Toilets are available but all are expected to bring packed lunch and water bottles. We will, of course be providing sanitisation centres and will do our best to keep children safe. If the forecast is rain or thunderstorm  we may not run.

Please phone or email for more information.


Also run after school club each afternoon from 3.15- 5.30 p.m..

Volunteering opportunities available.

We are on Blackbird Leys to provide support for our area and so children from this area are our number one priority 

We wait to see whether we will open for the May half term and summer playschemes. We are waiting on more information from Government. social distancing might be possible but would be tricky to maintain We are trying to keep in touch with regulars-having posted a letter, via the web site.
