Holiday Activities Programme - Dynamic Purchasing Vehicle (DPV)
Main contract details
The Council of the London Borough of Waltham Forest and London Borough of Redbridge (“the Authority”) are seeking Tenders from suitably experienced and qualified organisations for the Dynamic Purchasing Systems for the provision of Holiday Activity Programme.
The service shall commence on 1st July 2021 and shall continue up to and including 31st March 2025 (“the Contract Period”).
The Holiday Activities Programme aims to offer a variety of exciting and interesting activities including sport, creative and performing arts and environmental activities. The Holiday Activities and Food Programme is a DfE Funded project that aims to provide activities for pupils in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) for a period during the summer holiday, the winter holiday and the Easter holiday.
The programme has received funding from the Department for Education (DfE) to offer enriching activities and nutritious meals to school aged children and young people, from reception to year 11 (inclusive), who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals (FSM). School holidays are recognised as a pressure point for some families because of increased costs (such as food and childcare) and reduced incomes. For some children that can lead to a holiday experience gap with children from disadvantaged families:
- less likely to access organised out-of-school activities
- more likely to experience ‘unhealthy holidays’ in terms of nutrition and physical health
- more likely to experience social isolation
