SEN Easter Camp 2015


Following on from the success of our Summer, Autumn & Christmas Camps, Role Models are running a four day Special Educational Needs (SEN) Easter Activity Camp for a maximum of 20 children (aged 6-12) at the Wandle Recreation Centre in Wandsworth from March 30 – April 2.  The Centre is used as Park Gardens Nursery during term time so is completely secure.  The camp will be run by teachers from Blossom House School (a leading special needs school in Wimbledon) and other London schools.

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:  March 30 – April 2 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 Easter 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 Easter 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 Easter 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 the camp cost?

The cost is £60/day, discounted to £50/day if all four days are booked.  Childcare vouchers are accepted.

Is financial support available?

There may well be, depending on circumstances (e.g. post code). Please enquire regarding 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 Easter Camp?

Jessica Huckin (Teacher from Blossom House, 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 Easter 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.
