Moor Time holiday club runs five days a week during the Bradford Local Authority Christmas, Easter and Summer holidays. The club is currently funded by Bradford Council's Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) scheme.

The five days meet the needs of a range of different peer groups:

Mondays- for mobile young people aged 8-16 with complex communication and sensory needs and severe learning disabilities (this is our most over-subscribed session, so we run it twice a week. Young people who need this session type are offered either Monday or Wednesday, not both).

Tuesdays - for young people aged 5 (in year 1 of primary) -16 with medical needs who would benefit from a nurse on site. 

Wednesdays - for mobile young people aged 8-16 with complex communication and sensory needs and severe learning disabilities.

Thursdays - for secondary-age young people with all additional needs.  

Fridays - for primary-age year 1 and above with all additional needs.

We are now Ofsted registered and our staff can provide care to Year 1 and above. 

You will be asked on booking which session type you think is most suitable, and a decision will be made together with the club project manager.  Please check the email you will receive on booking for confirmation of session times as these can vary. 

During a full day session, there is a morning and afternoon snack time that we will provide. Lunch is at 12.30pm and we usually provide a free hot lunch. Alternatively families can provide a packed lunch. When you first make a booking we will ask you about any dietary or feeding requirements.
