SEN Christmas Camp 2014


Following on from the success of our Summer & Autumn Camps, Role Models are running a Special Educational Needs (SEN) Christmas Activity Camp for a maximum of 20 children (aged 6-12) at the Wandle Recreation Centre in Wandsworth from Dec 22nd – 23rd.  The Centre is used as Park Gardens Nursery during term time so is completely secure.  The special needs camp is being run by teachers from Blossom House School (a leading special needs school in Wimbledon) and other schools in South West London. Each day will be a balance of calm and dynamic activities, such as whole group games of rounders, designing posters & pictures, cupcake decorating, team competitions, music & gaming sessions plus some brand new activities.  The camp has been organised off the back of huge demand from parents for SEN focused activities run by experts. Book by emailing [email protected] or calling 07825 598344.

Dates:  Dec 22 – 23rd inclusive (9.30am – 2.30pm daily).

Address:  Wandle Recreation Centre, Mapleton Road, Wandsworth, SW18 4DN.


Why choose Role Models?

The quality of our people.  We are one of the very few childcare providers to offer specialist SEN care.  Our team of talented, enthusiastic and dynamic Role Models is able to create a safe and fun environment for children with a range of specific learning difficulties.  Each Role Model has been selected because he or she possesses a talent in at least one of five specific areas: music, drama, sport, arts & crafts or homework help.

Which specific special needs is the Christmas Camp catered for?

The activity week will meet the needs of children with mild to moderate special needs such as Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Down’s Syndrome, Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome.

What ages are most appropriate for the SEN Christmas Camp?

The special needs camp will be suitable for 6-12 year olds.  We will do some whole group activities and split the group depending on age & interest. 

What safety checks are in place?

All Role Models taking part in the SEN Christmas Camp have extensive SEN childcare experience, are DBS / CRB checked, reference checked and interviewed.  At least one will be First Aid trained.  There will be a minimum of 1:5 staff to children ratio.

How much will a day cost?

The cost is £60 per day, paid by bank transfer.

Is financial support available?

There may well be, depending on circumstances (e.g. post code). Please enquire regarding the use of childcare vouchers or local authority funding support.


Should children bring their own lunch?

Parents / guardians will need to provide a packed lunch and break time snack for their child, for each day of the special needs camp. Water will be available on site.

Who will be running the Christmas Camp?

Jessica Huckin (Teacher from Blossom House School, Wimbledon – a school specialising in SEN children) will be designing the event.  Our team of four SEN experienced Role Models will run the day.

Can a mainstream (or neuro-typical) sibling attend the Christmas Camp?

Yes, they absolutely can but the special needs camp is designed for SEN children and will be run at an appropriate pace with suitable activities.

You can book either by email or phone ([email protected] / 07825 598344).
