Healthy Holidays

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.

Spring 2022


Well, its been another fantastic day for all the children attending the Happy Healthy Holiday Camp at Eastmoor Community Project today!

This morning was packed full of really fun arts & crafts and sporting activities, followed by a delicious and nutritious meal.

In the afternoon the children loved taking part in the litter pick walk

in the glorious sunshine. We had a lovely surprise visit from Chris Croxall, Tenant Involvement Officer from WDH who rewarded all the children with an Easter Egg for their hard work.

All the activities this week have been designed to encourage the children to be healthy, active and develop new skills.


Day 3 of Happy Healthy Holidays today at Eastmoor Community Project!

Today the children spent most of the morning playing dodgeball and other fun activities outside, burning off lots of energy, making the most out of the fabulous weather! We also received a visit from Karen from Wakefield Library Services who read books to the children. Everyone enjoyed interacting with the stories, laughing and singing songs. After a nutritious lunch, the children took part in lots of craft activities themed around the environment and world around us. We can wait to see what they all get up to tomorrow.
