Please accept our apologies for any disruption to our service due to class bubbles
closing and children and staff self-isolating. We will try and update you as soon as
possible of any changes.
Thank you – Break Out Club team.
Break Out Club offers a range of holiday clubs and weekly after school provision to meet the needs of children and young people aged 5-19 with Special Educational Needs.
At Break Out Club we provide a service that families can trust our provision is mainly based in special education needs schools, which are familiar and safe environments equipped to meet children’s needs.
The sessions are primarily funded by Rotherham MBC and form part of the short breaks offer. www.rotherhamsendlocaloffer.org/
The clubs provide opportunities for young people to spend time with their peers; allowing their family to take a break from their caring role. Activities include soft play, creative arts, music, crafts, sports and games, multi-sensory room, outdoor learning, computers and off site activities.
Sessions will encourage communication and social interaction, sharing spaces and new experiences, positive choice making and learning new skills.
The holiday clubs run during February half term, Easter holidays, May half term, Summer holidays and October half term
I am having fun at Summer club. Yesterday I helped paint pebbles, today I made a bird feeder.
The clubs are a life saver especially in the six week holidays I don’t know what I’d do without them.
My daughter really enjoys holiday clubs. The clubs help me leaps and bounds it gives me a break and she loves coming.
My son enjoys holiday clubs and really benefits from them, he gets bored at home.
I like to talk to friends at Tuesday club about games. People are proud of me for going to clubs because for the last 6 years I was isolated playing in my games room at home.
