Nearly 1500 free summer school holiday activity places available to eligible families

11 June 2024

From football and gymnastics to arts and crafts, there are a whole host of activities available for school age children during the forthcoming school holidays.

The Summer Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme aims to provide enriching activities and healthy food for primary and secondary school-aged children, including those with special educational needs and disabilities, who are in receipt of free school meals. Bookings are now open.

The aim of the programme is to enable children to be active over the school holidays, eat healthily, and learn more about health and nutrition. It also gives children the chance to take part in fun, engaging and enriching activities.

During the Summer school holidays, eligible children can access up to 16 four-hour sessions at no cost to their family. Children and young people must live in Peterborough or attend a Peterborough school. The sessions include a variety of exciting activities and a healthy meal.

John Gregg, Director of Children’s Services, said: “There are many different activities on offer throughout the Summer holidays for children of all ages.

“We have nearly 1500 sessions available across 45 venues. Children will be provided with healthy food and activities and will be able to socialise with other children and give them the opportunity to try out new things. If your child is eligible, I’d encourage you to have a look what is on offer near you.

“If you have children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), have a look the website and call those providers you are interested in to see what they can offer you and your child or email the HAF team who can help.”
