Almost every afternoon during term time, we offer a wide choice of clubs for children and young people with special needs and disabilities. After school Clubs are held from 3.30 pm, some at our base at Chichester Nursery School Children and Family Centre in St James Road, and others are out and about in the community.
PACSO can collect children from St Anthony’s and Fordwater Schools, but parents are required to pick up from a pre-arranged venue at the end of each session. All clubs need to be booked in advance: email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
It’s free to become a member of PACSO! Once you’ve done your membership forms, you’ll receive our booking forms and more details about our events.
Bursaries may be available for some PACSO activities. Download a bursary form here.
During the summer term 2018, the following clubs are taking place:
On Tuesdays we run our popular Sensory Club at Chichester Nursery School, Children & Family Centre in St James Road for children from Reception to Year 8 (or those with more complex needs). Each week we take part in a range of sensory activities and also have fun playing with our magic carpet.
We also run our fabulous Go Club on Tuesday evenings. This is a youth club with lots of fun activities out and about in the community for School Year 9 to Age 19.
Forest Club is held on Wednesday. This is Forest school fun with Releasing Potential and PACSO at Slindon Woods, for children in Reception class up to age 19. We travel here from Chichester by minibus.
On Wednesday evenings, we run our Pub Club for age 18-25 years.
CYE club for young people in Year 7 to age 19 at CYE sailing centre, Chidham. This is a watersports club, focusing on kayaking. Minibus available.
On Friday, we travel to Tesco Chichester in the PACSO minibus, where we join the staff team for Job Club. Our young people, all aged between 16 and 25 years, take part in a variety of jobs including stacking shelves, serving on the till and packing bags. Our thanks to Tesco Charitable Trust who initially gave us a grant to launch this worthwhile activity.
Our After School Clubs are all bookable a term in advance. If your child is interested in participating in our Spring Clubs please be sure to become a PACSO member so that your details can be added to our database.
