What we'll do
The children and young people will be able to socialise in a small environment with trained playworkers and forest school leaders. They will be able to take part in a variety of free play and forest school activities, as well as arts and crafts and cooking. These places are available to families in receipt of benefit related free school meals and sessions will run from 0900-1500 weekdays. Each child will be entitled to 4 free sessions, which include all snacks and meals and activities. Sessions must be booked in advance. The setting has no technology, we are play and forest school based. *** This activity has been funded through the Department for Education’s (DfE) Holiday Activity and Food (HAF) programme and coordinated by East Sussex County Council. Free places are available for young people eligible for benefits-related free school meals. This eligibility criteria has been defined by the DfE. Additionally young people in several other target cohorts can attend funded places, such as those with SEND or Looked After Children (LAC). Please note, eligibility will be confirmed as part of the booking process.***

Making time for fun and play
N.I.P.P.E.R.S. has been offering out of school activities since 1973, so this year we are 50. The staff are qualified in Early Years, Playwork and Forest School Leadership. I have been involved with the group since 1978 and am the current chairperson of the Charity. I am a Forest School trainer working for the Mohair Centre Training based in Laughton. N.I.P.P.E.R.S. aims to enable children and young people to develop their full capacity through their leisure activities.

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.
