Big Norfolk Holiday Fun - Summer scheme launching soon!

We wanted to say a huge thank you for your support in helping us make the Big Norfolk Holiday Fun Easter activity programme a success back in April. A total of 7000 vulnerable families were able to access the activity boxes and an online programme of music, cookery, and craft, as well as over 500 attending face to face activity sessions in select schools.

Almost 60% of parents said they found out about the free scheme via their child's school and we really appreciate your ongoing help in identifying those children who are eligible to take part in the holiday programme.

Our Big Norfolk Holiday Fun summer activity programme for children will be launching in early July and we wanted you to know that plans are very much underway for the school summer holiday offer.

There will be a wide range of activities to encourage children to be more active during the summer holidays as well as sessions involving arts, music, cookery, and other specialist interests. All activities are planned to be face to face and will take place at local venues.

We'll provide you with information and letters to send home to parents when the programme is open for booking in early July. Parents will need to register online and they'll receive a unique booking code which they can use when booking the activities for their children.

The Big Norfolk Holiday Fun programme is a Department for Education funded programme that delivers free healthy and enriching activities during the school holidays for children and young people whose families are eligible to receive free school meals. The scheme will run during the Summer holidays and during the Christmas holidays too.

If you have any questions about the scheme please do get in touch by emailing the team at bhnf@norfolk.gov.uk
