Summer Holiday Activities

Family Fun Days

Mondays 10am - 12.30pm

Ouseburn Community Centre

This summer we are working alongside Ouseburn Community Centre to open up the school grounds for Family Fun Days.                           We will be open every Monday (excluding Bank Holidays) during the summer holiday period for children and families from Hotspur and the wider community to come and join in.

There will be a range of activities including sports, face-painting, nature play and arts and crafts.  Sure Start will be running activities for children under 5 inside the Community Centre.

This will be an excellent opportunity to keep in touch with school over the holiday period, giving children the chance to meet up with friends and make use of the school field and resources.  


Family Trips

Tuesdays 10am - 4pm*

Meet at the school's main entrance

Every summer we plan a range of exciting day trips for our families and this year is no exception!  Building upon the success of previous years we have a family trip planned on every Tuesday of the holiday, details of which can be found below.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Leaving the school  at 10am and returning at 4pm* the trips are all free of charge.  Transport to and from the venues has been arranged; once there the day is yours to explore at your leisure. If you would like to join us for any of the trips please fill in the form at the bottom of this page.  Alternatively, letters will be sent out to all parents/carers in the coming weeks with a booking form that can be handed in at the school office.  We have a limited number of places available on each trip and demand is always high.  We aim to be as fair as possible when allocating places and guarantee that everyone gets on at least one of the trips that they have chosen. The closing date for applying for places is Friday 30th June 2017.

*times may vary depending on distance of journey, please check.
