We are pleased to announce that we are intending to run a Playscheme during October half-term. Bookings are now open and Howe Dell children will be given priority up until Friday 1st October.

After this date we are happy to say we will be opening up places to children from the wider community.

Forms for registering your child onto this can be found online, at the school office or directly from Breakfast/Runway Club.

In order to ensure we are able to run Playscheme on all the days advertised please get your booking forms in as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Spaces will be limited.

We have been lucky to have been running Playschemes at Howe Dell for the past 12 years so we hope you are able to support the continuation of this service.

We offer a variety of activities throughout the day from outside activities to baking, arts & crafts.

The cost for the day is £24 per child and £20 for siblings, which includes breakfast.

Children to please bring their own packed lunch and a water bottle.

Newcomers are welcome to come and chat to us outside the Community Hall from 7:45-8:30am or 2:45-6pm to find out more. Playscheme is available for children from Reception to Year 6.

We look forward to welcoming back children from outside Howe Dell and would like to thank all our parents for your continued support during the last year and a half.
