Whitwell Parish Council Playscheme is an Ofsted registered provision held for three weeks during the school Summer Holiday, with Playscheme Staff being employed by Whitwell Parish Council.

The Parish Council hires Whitwell Primary School, where the Playscheme will is held.

The Summer Club which will be held from 29 July to 16 August 2024 starts at 9.30 am and  finishes at 3.00 pm each day.  There will be a selection of arts and crafts, sport and play activities along with time to build dens, beat the staff at a game of bench ball and take part in house competitions and the talent show.

This year we are also experimenting with a new role-play area for all children which will include new play equipment.

The cost of the Summer Club is £10 per day.  Children living within the Whitwell Parish benefit from a reduced rate of £6 per day.  This concession is due to Whitwell Parish subsidising the Holiday clubs.  This charge is mostly spent on refreshments (fruit and squash), art and craft materials and games.

You may be able to claim approximately 70% of the cost back if you work 24 hours per week, through the Tax Credits System. For more information, please ring the Family Tax Credit helpline (0845 3003900).  You will need our Ofsted registration number, which is 207281.
