Happy, Healthy & Active Holidays is a Department for Education (DfE) funded scheme to support a range of clubs and activities for children and young people in Telford and Wrekin during the school holidays until December 2024!
Across the borough there will be activity sessions with meals provided for children and young people, aged between 5 -16 (reception to year 11) who are eligible for income related free school meals. Absolutely free.
There will be a range of activities on offer at the Holiday Clubs throughout the Easter, Summer and Christmas school holidays, including but not limited to swimming, sports, arts & crafts, cooking, nature based activities and much more!
If you are eligible to receive benefits related free school meals for your child(ren) from reception to year 11 then you can register and book onto the Happy Healthy Active Holidays scheme.
Benefits-related free school meals are available to children, if as a parent/carer you are receiving one of the qualifying benefits listed on the Gov.uk website and have your claim verified by school or local authority. You can check your eligibility and how to apply for free school meals on the gov.uk website.
Some activities may have certain criteria such as specific age groups, please check your child is eligible for the activity when booking on your chosen session(s).
All eligible children and young people need to be signed up and registered on the HHAH website and booking system to take part. We will send a letter direct to the home address of each eligible child 3 to 4 weeks before the start of Easter, Summer and Christmas school holidays. If you're not sure how to sign up, check out our Frequently Asked Questions page or watch our help videos!
The letter will provide information about the Happy, Healthy & Active Holiday programme as well as other support which may be available to you.
If you are new to the Happy Healthy Active holiday programme please view the help video from the link below and register your and your child’s details.
If you have previously registered please log-on and update you and your child‘s personal information, your emergency contact and your email address.
Once you have registered, the Happy, Healthy & Active Holidays team will tell you by email approximately two weeks before the start of the holiday period to book on the activities you would like your child/ren to attend.
