Covid-19 update
We are currently working within Government guidelines to adapt our provision and enable delivery this summer. Whilst the situation remains turbulent we are pushing forward to deliver a comprehensive Fit, Fed & Read programme from July. This year’s project will have to look different, but we will still aim to offer a high quality physical activity programme including support with literacy, with a nutritious meal every day, free of charge.

About the project
“A high-quality holiday activity programme ‐ including support with literacy ‐ in Hertfordshire’s most disadvantaged neighbourhoods, with a nutritious meal every day, free of charge.”

 Fit Fed & Read school holiday activity programmes operate across Hertfordshire during the school Easter and summer holidays.


Each four-hour day consists of:

  • Two hours of physical activity
  • One hour of fun education
  • One hour of two-course nutritious cooked lunch

Participant entry criteria:

  • Aged between 8-11 years
  • Eligible for free school meals

Physical Activity

  • Creative Literacy (Hertfordshire Libraries)
  • Fire and Community Safety (Hertfordshire Fire & Rescue Service)

There has been extensive evaluation of the programme delivery and the impact that it can have for the participants and their families. The most recent evaluation document can be found here.
