What is WF Happy Healthy Holidays?

The WF Happy Healthy Holidays programme is aimed at providing healthy food and enriching activities for primary and secondary school aged children who are eligible for income based free school meals.

For the summer holidays eligible children can access a variety of activity and sport sessions at no cost to you. The session will also include a healthy meal.

These sessions will be delivered by a number of providers across the Wakefield district, such as schools, voluntary and community organisations, and childcare providers.

The sessions are fully funded by the Department for Education (DfE). Visit the government website for more information on the national programme.
