Holiday Activities and Food Schemes

Dear Parents and Carers,


Please find information about summer holiday schemes in our local area:


  • The Department for Education is funding Holiday Activity and Food Programme (HAF) schemes, that provide eligible children with the opportunity to take part in enriching activities and enjoy a hot meal as well as receiving nutritional education and wider health and wellbeing support. You can search for schemes in your local area via the Family Information and Services Hub (FISH).


  • HAF Eligibility Incudes: school aged children in Year R and above who are in receipt of benefits related free school meals; and recently arrived Ukrainian and Afghan refugees. HAF is also provided spaces for children with SEND or an EHCP plan; and children in contact with Early Help or Social Services.
