The holiday activities and food (HAF) programme has been designed for children aged 4 to 16 (reception to year 11) who are receiving benefits tested free school meals. HAF offers eligible pupils access to fun activities and at least one healthy meal is provided during each session. The activities take place during the Easter, summer, and Christmas school holidays. 

We are looking to offer eligible families a large variety of activities that their children can attend so that there is something for everyone.
