You will find a link to the booking site, which went live on Monday 3rd July. Please do check back as new activities / places may be added over the coming days.
If you do not have access to the internet, a valid email address or a smartphone please contact the academy, who can provide information on the activities running in your area and will be able to provide contact information so you can contact the provider directly and they can make the booking(s) on your behalf.
If your child requires extra support due to SEND needs or any other, please have a conversation with the provider in the first instance to ensure that they are able to support your child’s needs at the session.
