Please find attached a letter from Marcus Rashford MBE and Henry Dimbleby MBE for all parents informing them of the Holiday Activity and Food Programme taking place across the borough this summer.

The DfE are funding free places for children who are in receipt of benefit related free school meals on holiday activity clubs during the school holidays. In Waltham Forest we will be running a wide programme from Monday 26 th July – Friday 20th August for children aged 5 – 16.

We are also using funding from the Leaders Pledge to extend provision to vulnerable children and provide a universal offer to support all our young people access positive and enriching activities this summer.

Over the next few weeks, we will be writing directly to all parents who are in receipt of FSM with full details on how they can attend the programme, a letter and flyer will be shared with schools to share, as well as full information of the programme will be made available at www.walthamforest.gov.uk/holidays.

I would be grateful if you could share this letter, and future information with your parents / carers

Many thanks

Yours sincerely
