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
  • Winter
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 Winter
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.
