Snack and Play - school holiday programmes

Snack and Play Summer Holiday Provision

The Council is running a free Snack and Play provision over the summer holidays from 28 June 2021 until 30 July 2021 - 10am to 3pm each day.

Applications will be considered for children who meet the following criteria below:

  • Children from low income households who qualify for free school meals
  • Children who have been shielding during the pandemic
  • Care experienced children and young people
  • Children who require support as identified by the Head Teacher

The sessions will be held in local Hub Schools and will support children to take part in building friendships through team games, taking part in sports, arts and craft activities. A healthy meal offer will also be provided.

If you would like your child/children to take part in this programme and feel that they meet the criteria, please speak with the head teacher of your child’s school.

Please note you may not be offered the full five weeks as this will be subject to demand.

Young people who meet the criteria detailed below will be offered an activity pass to take part in free leisure activities within one of the Council's Leisure Centres.  The pass will also provide young people with the opportunity to drop in to sessions delivered by our Youth Development workers.
