We are really proud to be a partner on the Healthy Activity Fund Holiday clubs across Leeds.
This scheme exists to help low income families and children who need a little more help to access holiday club provision.
We’ve listed the key elements of the programme on this page, so please scroll down for more information, or get in touch on email@example.com

PE Partner Healthy Holiday clubs are designed to give children lots of opportunities to develop a positive relationship with physical activity and a healthy lifestyle.
On arrival all the children will get a piece of fruit as a breakfast snack, before engaging in a packed day of games, sports, and fun, wrapped around a hot and healthy lunch. All the food is vegetarian and is provided by our partners Catering Leeds. We ask for special dietary requirements on the booking and Catering Leeds publish a list of allergens on their website.

If your child is eligible for a Healthy Holidays meal, but would prefer a packed lunch on certain days, please feel free to send them to the club with one.
We are delivering the Healthy Activities holiday clubs on behalf of the following schools and clusters:
Morley Cluster: Fountain; Morley St Francis; Seven Hills; Asquith; Churwell; Gildersome; Driglinghton; Morley Victoria; Birchfield
Rothwell Cluster: Rothwell St Marys; Sharp Lane; Rothwell Primary, Thorpe, Woodlesford
Inners East Cluster: Coop Academy Nightingale; Coop Academy Woodlands; Coop Academy Brownhills; Coop Oakwood Academy; St Augustines Primary School; Wykebeck Primary School; St Nicholas Primary; Victoria Primary; St Patricks Primary School; All Saints Primary School; Ebor Gardens Primary School; Shakespeare Primary School; St Peters Primary School
Headingley & Kirkstall partnership: Burley St Matthiaas; Kirkstall St Stephens; Kirkstall Valley; Hawksworth Wood; Springbank; Shire Oak, Westwood
2Gether Cluster: Dixons; Bankside; Bracken Edge; Holy Rosary; Harehills Primary
We are working with a number of partner schools who have received funding support for their pupils from this important national scheme.
If your child is eligible for free school meals and attends one of our partner schools you may be given a pre paid voucher code to support your place at one of our HAF holiday clubs. This means your child can attend the clubs and to receive a fruit breakfast and a hot lunch.
We want to make our clubs a Universal provision, meaning that every child can attend, so those who have not received a supported place through their school can pay £16 per day per place to book on the clubs. As funding is limited to feeding the children with a supported place, we ask paying parents and families to send their children with a packed lunch.
Want to see where and when our clubs are running across Leeds this Easter? Check out the digital flyer.
We are working with 13 groups of schools (for 44 schools in total) across Leeds to deliver a wide reaching programme - We’ll move around the groups to give each school a chance to host clubs, but for Easter here is the map of where our clubs are.
If your child is getting a funded place this Easter (2023) then they will receive a fruit breakfast and a hot lunch every day they attend.
Please see below for the list of meals we will be providing. If your child doesn’t want that meal on that day please feel free to send them with a packed lunch instead. We have asked for any special dietary requirements on the booking form, so if your has a specific food need please do let us know and we can cater for their needs.

We are very proud of our record of supporting children with special education needs and disabilities to engage in positive physical activities and we have helped hundreds of SEND children to access our sessions.
It is essential to us that we can properly support children, and that it is always a positive experience. While we make all reasonable adjustments to make sessions inclusive, there are some children who do need an additional team member to support their attendance and this is not always possible. We work hard to secure funding support so that we can give children with 1to1 needs the extra coach, but this isn’t always possible and we will not be able to accommodate complex needs without having the appropriate funding and the right team members in place.
For the HAF holiday clubs we have one supported place per day at each club and is available to a child from the host school only.
The SENCo in the school will choose the child or children they feel will engage, want to be there and will benefit the most from this place.This can be 1 child for 4 days, or 4 children for a day each (or a mix), but places are limited to 1 supported child per day.
It is vitally important that you share some information with PE Partner so that they can support your child appropriately, so please get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are hosting a club on behalf of your group, here are the steps. We’ll provide all the letters and information you need and handle any parent enquiries, but we do need a little bit of help getting the word out.
Here’s what we need you to do
Step 1- identify targeted children who you think will benefit from the holiday provision (these don't have to be on free school meals - 15% of places can be used for targeted pupils) and support these families to book on.
Step 2 - Send the free school meal letters to all your Free School Meal cohort
Step 3- Send the General letter to all your non Free School Meal children
Step 4 - If you are a host school, please ask your SENco to email Andrea on email@example.com for the SEND process.
PE Partner will handle all parent bookings and enquiries. If anyone asks, please direct them to www.pepartner.co.ukor to call 01133226115
Please note that when schools host a club, that club is open to the children from the consortium group (unless you specifically request that it is limited to your pupils)
Our onsite coaching team will all hold clean DBS checks with PE Partner and have been recruited in line with Keeping Children Safe in Education legislation.
