Play Scheme


Wavendon Gate are proud to provide holiday services for our pupils and pupils within our local area. The Play Scheme was established Easter 2010 and has been a successfully growing facility of the school.

The Play Scheme provides holiday care for 5 - 11 years during:

  • October half term
  • February half term
  • Easter holidays
  • May half term
  • Summer holidays

We run from 7.45am to 5.15pm, Monday to Friday, excluding Bank Holidays and Inset Days.


The Play Scheme is run by staff of the school with support from casual staff. Our casual staff are made up of local 6th formers and university students who value this opportunity to work with a wide range of children in a safe and secure environment. The school staff support the young adults in their development and mentor them through their work experience with Wavendon Gate school.


Play Scheme is an opportunity for the children to have a fun filled day, while their parents are busy. The Play Scheme offers active play inside and outside, organised games, organised sports, arts and craft, imaginative free play, painting, den building, creative design, day trips, baking and much much more. The Play Scheme team provide a varied and creative programme for each Play Scheme to stimulate and keep the children entertained.
