Melland High School’s playing field is open to families for three weeks of the holidays – Monday 27th July to Friday 14th August, between 10am-3pm, Monday-Friday. This is for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) aged 0 to 25 years.

There aren’t any activities or staff so your family is your responsibility, but it’s a great, enclosed space – ideal for energetic children to run around safely. Up to 50 people can be in the field at any time so it’s an opportunity to meet up with other families. You’d be welcome to take a picnic, just be aware that toilets aren’t available.

To book and for any questions – call 0161 234 1946.

Thank you to Manchester City Council’s Local Offer and Short Breaks teams for co-producing this summer offer with families. We’re also grateful to Melland High School for offering their space and expertise to make this happen.

Thanks as well to the Manchester Parent Champions for getting involved with the discussions.
