Specialist SEND holiday club
What we'll do
The holiday club will be taking place at Woad Farm, Hanslope, Milton Keynes, MK19 7NE. Your map might suggest Woad Farm Bed and Breakfast, this is correct. Sessions allow children and young people to engage up and close with animals, supporting with feeding, bedding, cleaning, grooming and engaging with the farm animals and smaller animals. We also have an amazing forest area which children have private access to, to build forts and dens, help prepare bird and squirrel feeders and generally enjoy being in an environment surrounded by nature. At the farm we have a range of animals including: Goats, Ducks, Sheep, Cows, Pigs, Rabbits, Chickens and Guinea pigs. Our SEND specific session has a small group focus, keeping staff ratios high to provide support. Our staff are specialised in supporting individuals who have experienced one of the following; (or similar) trauma, anxiety, low wellbeing or self esteem, neurodivergent disgnosis. Unfortunately due to the location of the farm, we are not wheelchair accessible. This session would not be suitable for children with a high level of need (for example, who would be unable follow instructions to keep themselves safe and participate in a small group setting). We do offer 1:1 session, please get in touch for more information. At this session, adults/carers are welcome to join if needed but this is not necessary. This session is funded as part of Milton Keynes City Council Holiday Activities and Food Programme to deliver sessions for school aged children in receipt of benefit-related Free School Meals (FSM), during the Summer school holidays in 2024.

Cancellation Policy
I am not able to offer refunds in general but may be able to if there is good notice.

My experience is an educational activity and the 14-day cooling-off period under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 therefore applies. After the 14 day period my standard policy will apply.
