HOPS 2020 - 9am - 3pm Badgemore School, Henley - 3rd-7th August
COST: (NO increase from 2019)
£25 a day or £100 for the week
minimum age is SIX and maximum age is 12...this means the child's age at the time of HOPS.
Children will need to bring a packed lunch (NO nuts, please) and we suggest a maximum of £1 a day for the tuck shop.
If your child has a medical or other condition that you feel may impact their time at HOPS, please fill in the relevant form on the Book Now page and submit it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. This does not affect your application, but ensures we can cater properly for your child.
Children with special needs
HOPS endeavours to be an inclusive environment for all children. If your child has a condition or disability which would mean they would benefit for additional help, please contact us using phone number or email above to discuss their needs and how we can best support them to fully enjoy their time with us.
We recognise that some children need a little help to settle in to a new environment, so we run the HOPS Buddy System. No matter what your child’s age, if they would benefit from a helping hand in the first hour of attendance to make friends, find their feet and fully relax, please introduce them on the day to our buddy team after first registering their attendance. They will then be allocated a Play Helper to help them settle in as part of a group. If your child needs one-to-one assistance, please contact us in advance to arrange this and discuss this.
What to bring
Generally, children need only bring themselves and money for the tuckshop - £1 a day is plenty.
Water is available to drink at all times.
If the weather is wet and the ground muddy, or if they plan to take part in the foam slide, then it’s wise to bring a change of clothing (named, please!) and possibly a small towel in a plastic bag. Please label all items.
The only food needed is a packed lunch (PLEASE NO NUTS!)
HOPS is a tech-free zone! Technology including but not limited to mobile phones and iPods should be left at home, but if we do see your child with some we will remove it and keep it safe in a locked box for the morning and return it to your child at home time.
All lost property will be collected and displayed each day for collection. After HOPS week, it will be kept for two weeks, after which it will be disposed of or sent to charity, as appropriate.
Please note: in 2019 we had A LOT of uncollected lost property - we cannot store it so please try to check every day when collecting your child.
The tuck shop will normally be open 10.30-11.30am and 1.30-2pm (except Friday afternoon when it will NOT open)
Costs are minimal and £1 a day per child is plenty.
