SNAPs Play Scheme

The SNAPS Holiday Play Project is designed for children and young people who have complex special educational needs between the ages of 5 and 19 living in the London Borough of Redbridge. It is based at Newbridge School, Gresham Drive Campus and offers a holiday play scheme during the summer holiday, the spring break holiday and the half term holiday in the autumn and spring terms.

The majority of places are for children referred by Redbridge Children with Disabilities Team (CWDT). These children have an annual allocation of days  based upon an assessment of need and these places are commissioned by CWDT. Parents and carers may buy additional days over their childs' allocation if there is availability. Please indicate on your forms if you are eligible for the means tested Free School Meals as we may be able to assist with your application through this  

Parents of carers of children attending Newbridge School who do not have allocation of places from CWDT may make an application to attend the scheme. Again this is subject to availability.

The cost for any place/day not allocated by CWDT is £130  per day and must be paid before the start of the playscheme,

At the bottom of the page you will find the application forms for future play schemes.
