Booking is first come first serve and the last couple of years we have been full and had a waiting list so book early to guarantee your child’s place.

If you didn’t attend holiday club last year, this vimeo should give you an idea of what went on: https://vimeo.com/852117503 

Children will be split into age appropriate groups and over the course of the morning they rotate in their groups between doing crafts, games, secret agent investigations, thinking time in their small groups and refreshments. They will begin and end their morning in an altogether time with all the groups where we have singing, videos, tell jokes, stories and sometimes get a bit messy!

SEN provision: St Mary’s is an all inclusive holiday club, therefore we do our absolute best to work with you to enable your child to attend. We have a sensory chill out area, use visual timetables, choosing board, have team members who are familiar with Makaton and using PECS and welcome families to come and have a look round the space beforehand to help any child settle on day 1. We aim to provide any children who needs it with a 1-1 or 1-2 support however this is dependant on the number of children who request one and the number of 1-1 adults we have available. We also welcome children attending with a PA if the child would get on better with a familiar adult (this adult would need a DBS to be on site).

Funded Places: We have a limited amount of funded places or reduced fees places available for families whose children would not be able to attend otherwise due to cost. Please get in touch BEFORE booking if you feel this applies to you. If you are in a position to be able to “donate a day” to enable another child to attend, please do get in touch.

Any questions, please email Liz on cfcw@eatonsocon.org


With a packed church (plus a waiting list) it was very busy last year so make sure you book in early to guarantee yourself a space. Below are some quotes from parents which reflect what they thought of this year’s holiday club and some photos of what we got up to.


“Thank you to a very successful holiday club! For the first time [child] was excited to be going each morning, no usual anxiety with change of routine for her! I cannot thank you enough for the well thought out time she had this week.

“[Child] has just loved her time with you all! Thank you so much for everything! We look forward to Sunday!”

“[Child who required a 1-1 at holiday club], and so many of the children with additional needs who attend, simply would not get to experience a holiday club if it wasn’t for this.  The benefits are almost immeasurable – the confidence it gives [child], the skills she learns and the opportunity for independence…..I have never seen inclusion – true inclusion – anywhere like we see at St Marys.  It tells [child], her sister and our family that we DO belong.  And it also shows everyone else that everyone is of value and everyone SHOULD be welcome.”
