Free Summer Holiday Clubs for Pupil Premium Children

Woodland Warriors

Wickford memorial Park

Saturday 29th May, 11:45am - 1:15pm


Woodland Warriors is an outdoor company, that helps children of different age groups and from different backgrounds to learn basic life skills through outdoor play. These sessions ran in conjunction with Takiwatanga are specifically designed for autistic children and those with social anxiety issues.


Throughout the sessions, children will be able to participate in a wide range of activities from balancing and using core muscles on the tree swing, to climbing rope ladders and trees. They will develop problem solving skills, learn about the creatures and their interesting lives in the undergrowth and above the canopy, and there will be opportunities to make tools, craft items, learn how to safely make fire, and identify animal tracks. No two sessions are the same, with different activities each week.

Autism & SEN Friendly Sessions

After the huge success of the Autism & SEN Friendly session at Easter Audley End have decided to release some more sessions for their Woodland Adventure Days, Wildlife Week and Summer Festival! Please see poster below for exact dates and booking links. Additional dates may be added upon demand.

Autism & SEN Friendly Sessions will have the following changes made to your experience:

- The session will be at the beginning of the day so visitors will be the first customers on site and the site will therefore be quieter
- Parking will be in our main car park for close access to the site
- Reduced or eliminated queuing time
- Reduced volume of sound/music & no microphones
- No flashing lights or unexpected events/sounds
- All staff will be trained to reflect the advice the specialists and parents have given us
