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 they will have a healthy meal each day. Each activity session must last for at least four hours a day and operates in the following school holidays.

  • Easter
  • Summer
  • Christmas
The entitlement for each eligible child is:
  • 4 days for 4 hours during Easter
  • 16 days for 4 hours during Summer
  • 4 days for 4 hours during Christmas

Children with SEND that attend main stream schools can take part in most HAF activities. Children attending specialist schools that require additional support will most likely have an Educational Health Care Plan and be known to the 0-25 Disability Team and have access to the Short Breaks service.
