- Raise attainment, by giving disadvantaged pupils access to a range of enrichment activities;
- Improve eating habits and levels of physical activity of participating children during and after the programme;
- Provide opportunities for family learning and parental engagement in children's education; and
- Improve access to healthy food during school holidays.
Support for providers
Accord Housing Association will support the providers they fund to achieve the DfE's minimum standards:
- Food: clubs must provide at least one meal a day (breakfast, lunch or tea) and all food provided at the club (including snacks) must meet the school food standards.
- Nutritional education: clubs must include an element of nutritional education each day aimed at improving children's knowledge and awareness of healthy eating. These do not need to be formal learning activities and could for example include activities such as getting children involved in food preparation and cooking; growing fruit and vegetables, and taste tests.
- Policies and procedures: clubs must be able to demonstrate and explain their safeguarding arrangements and have relevant and appropriate policies and procedures in place in relation to:
- Health and safety
- Accessibility and inclusiveness
Where appropriate, clubs must also be compliant with Ofsted requirements when working with children
