Salisbury Jumpin Fun Inflatable Park announced the return of termtime Monday afternoon sessions for young children with special educational needs (SEN) for free from next week.

Between 4.30pm and 5.30pm on Mondays from September 13 during termtime, the whole of the 20,000sqft inflatable theme park in Old Sarum’s facilities will be made exclusively available to members of recognised disabled groups and societies.

Each SEN visitor can have up to three family members also attend with them free of charge, and adjustments have been made to cater to individuals with sensory needs to ensure an inclusive environment.

Park Manager Carla Anne Elliot said: “To allow all children the same access to experiences regardless of their needs is so important and for Jumpin Fun to recognise this and close the centre to the general public, instead focusing on families that have children with specific needs is essential to building our business as well as offering an amazing time for those that truly benefit from these sessions.

“I am proud to offer these sessions for free and give something back to these groups that are sometimes overlooked.”

Inflatable play has been shown to help with a wide range of sensory, developmental, and physical disabilities, according to Jumpin Fun.

There are obstacle courses, football games, giant wipe out balls, a 5-meter slide, a balance beam, and other activities.

The café will also be open with snacks, and hot and cold drinks, with the option to pre-book food.

Some activities are not operational due to risk assessment, with music reduced in volume and the capacity of the park halved.

One person can book for up to four people at SEN only events, with visitors asked to show their Disability Living Allowance or a letter from a medical professional body confirming their diagnosis.
