We hope you can join us at Spectrum Play – our dedicated play and meet SEND sessions at Littleport Leisure Centre.
We are delighted to join forces with Littleport Leisure to provide family sessions for our members in a private environment; siblings are most welcome. We have been working with the Littleport Leisure team for over 5 years on our Wrestling events with UBW, so it’s fantastic to extend our work with them even further. Our inclusive sessions here are designed to help families reduce their isolation and increase their social circles with like-minded families. Our sessions are created to encourage opportunities, here is just a small example of the session outline and our plans ahead.
As a guideline, our sessions will range from being spread across 2-4 adjacent rooms/halls to accommodate different settings.
- Meet other like-minded families in a private setting with light refreshments available
- Expanding friendship circles, improving social skills and gaining peer support
- Provide children with an opportunity to play, join in different sports and try new activities
- Meet the Spectrum team and catch up with our family worker for family/child support inc DLA/PIP/EHCP
- Learn about our other sessions, away days, the Arts Award, the Max Card and other services
- Provide themed sessions, parties and photoshoots
- Moving forwards, Spectrum Play sessions provide us with the opportunity to introduce such options as mini-athletics, exotic animals, expand refreshment options, utilise technology, movie options, including soft play, plus guest visits and much, much more.
We have seen a very high level of demand for the Spectrum Play sessions so far, so we will rotate places to ensure fair access.
As a guideline, confirmations and any waiting list places for this session will be issued w/c July 18th
During our summer Spectrum Play sessions, we are providing access to roller skating in the main hall under the guidance of our skating teacher Rachel. We will be providing options to assist beginners with the basics as well as free skating for those that are comfortable in doing so already.
For the beginners, Rachel can work with a group of up to 15 persons at a time and dependent on demand we will assign time slots for people to join her in a separate area to the free skate. We will accommodate as many children as we possibly can. In joining the skating you do so at your own risk.
You are welcome to bring your own skates if you have them already, we also have access to a range of skates as well at the centre.
Event Summary & Session Notes
The session is scheduled for between 130pm and 330pm.
The cost for this session is £5 per family. This cost for these sessions may be revised and vary going forward as we introduce new equipment, activities, external partners and look to achieve funding paths for its development. We will always advise if any additional costs are applicable in relation to the activities we bring in to complement the sessions.
As these sessions are new in our portfolio, please do bear with us as we build them up and ascertain what aspects work best. Over the coming months, we will be trying different capacity limits, fine-tuning the sessions in general and adapting to different age ranges to ensure we can achieve the best fit across the board. We will change some aspects/activities each session to keep things fresh and try new things. We will also create some new volunteering roles for these sessions in due course as well as take feedback at different points, to help with development.
We provide no transport to the venue, but ample free parking is available onsite, just a short distance from the entrance.
Please note that sound levels will vary each session depending on the capacity we are testing, the halls we use on the day and the activities we are doing.
Each session is designed to be family orientated and encourage peer interaction. As with our other sessions, your children are your responsibility for the session we provide. It is not possible to drop your children off and leave the venue.
