Holiday activities and food programme

We have secured funding from the Department for Education to provide a holiday activities and food (HAF) programme for children eligible for benefits-related free school meals.

This will run during parts of the Easter, summer and Christmas holidays.

Eligibility

To be eligible for the HAF programme your child must be registered to receive benefits related free school meals. If you think you might be eligible and are not yet registered please visit our free school meals page.

Summer holiday activity vouchers

We have partnered with local providers to arrange activities during the summer holidays.

Eligible families will receive 7 activity voucher codes unique to each child. These will be sent in a letter from school.

Each activity code entitles you to 8 activity hours, so in total you will be entitled to 7 days of activities (or 56 hours). 

Please contact individual providers for exact details about what the provision will offer and confirm any COVID-19 restriction arrangements that may be in place.

How to use your vouchers

To use your vouchers, choose the activity session your child would like to take part in from the list below. Then book with the provider and tell them you have a HAF activity voucher and let them know the voucher code.

Food and nutrition

Food plays a major role in the HAF programme. However, HAF is about more than just the food itself. It’s an opportunity to learn about food and nutrition, for young people to build an understanding of healthy food, to get stuck in and make a meal, or even grow their own food.

For information about nutrition as well as great recipe ideas, visit:

SEN support

If you feel your child needs support to access mainstream activities or requires specialist provision please contact us to discuss your child’s needs. Our inclusion fund could provide your child with one-to-one support.
