Tots 2 Teens Club & Scheme
Tots 2 Teens Club is a club that is held at Portfield School after school for children aged 4-19 years and over.
The club is held on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 3.15PM-5:30PM We do many different activities during the evening that the children enjoy. We aim for them to be in a safe environment with friends to socialise with whilst having fun.
The children need to bring a packed lunch and there is a charge of £3.50 per session for club evenings.
Many of our senior students attend work placements with support in various work establishments throughout the county. At present students are experiencing the workplace at the Dyfed Riding Centre, Stackpole Gardens, the Bowlings Riding Stables, Blueskies at Scolton, Midway Motors and Crymych Leisure Centre.
Portfield School has good links with Pembrokeshire College and has received support from the horticulture students in developing a log circle and a sensory garden as well as maintenance and cutting back of hedges and bushes and erecting the polytunnel. Childcare students support our rebound trampoline on a Wednesday morning by ‘spotting’ while students receive their therapy.
