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.

Summer 2022

To kick things off this Summer we enjoyed some fun activities, talked about each others family tree and enjoyed a home made lasagne.

The following day Andy form Family Fit came to play lots of fun games with us. Thanks a lot Andy! After having our lunch we took part in some craft activities before heading back outside to finish the day playing more team games. 

To end this jam packed few days, kids took part in lots of arts and crafts, music, team games and much more.
