If your family is on a lower income your child could be entitled to a place on Hounslow’s Holiday Activities and Food programme, which gives local children the chance to experience engaging and dynamic activities when term time’s over. 

Tasty food is also part of the deal, with every child who attends being provided with free, nutritious meals during the holidays.

All children who receive free school meals are eligible for a place on the programme, which is funded by the Department for Education.

Children get to take part in a variety of exciting events, with activities offered this summer including basketball, cycling, kayaking, arts and crafts and much more.

Wellbeing is central to the programme.  There’s at least sixty minutes of physical activity included each day, alongside engaging learning about healthy eating.
