A story by Stanmore Playscheme
We provided a playscheme based at Stanmore House School 3 days per week for 7 weeks during the school during school break for young people with severe and complex additional support need.
Stanmore Playscheme has been operating for 19 years during school break, it is administered by a voluntary committee registered and inspected by care inspectorate. It provides appropriate play in a safe environment supervised by trained staff, also offering parents/carers welcome respite.
What Stanmore Playscheme did
Stanmore Playscheme runs 3 days a week for 7 weeks of the year. It is based at Stanmore House School. Staff are recruited from staff based at Stanmore House on a casual basis, as some only work up to 21 days or less.
They are all trained and experienced in working with young people with severe and complex additional support needs meaning up to 20 youngsters can attend. Appropriate programmes are offered in a safe environment. A clinical health practitioner/nurse is always on duty.
