What is the Holiday Activities and Food Programme (HAF)

The Holiday Activities and Food Programme (HAF) is a great way for your child to have fun during the school holidays. Eligible children will have the opportunity to make new friends, take part in a variety of exciting activities and receive a healthy meal each day.
The entitlement for each eligible child is:
  • 4 days for 4 hours during the Easter holidays
  • 16 days for 4 hours during the Summer holidays
  • 4 days for 4 hours during the Winter holidays
Children with SEND that attend mainstream schools can take part in most HAF activities. Children with an EHCP attending specialist schools, that require additional support, can access activities through the Short Breaks service.
