Children and young people with SEND

We have been working hard to ensure that we are able to cater for every child this HAF by working with organisations like Active Impact to learn how to meet any additional needs your child might have. For more information on how we are doing this you can visit our SEND page. If you are unsure whether your child’s requirements will be met, please do not hesitate to get in contact with the provider directly who will be more than happy to discuss arrangements with you.

What is it?

The Holiday Activity and Food (HAF) programme is funded by the Department of Education, with strict guidelines on eligibility. HAF can only be offered to those in reception to year 11 who receive benefits-related free school meals.

The programme offers a range of activities for children and their families including family play days, football camps, cinema tickets, arts and craft and more. Many of these activities provide food and in addition there are home cooking kits and activity packs that can be collected from various locations across the City.

We understand that all children and young people can benefit from a programme like HAF, which is why Gloucestershire County Council have been working hard to secure extra funding to extend the offer to all families, just as they did in December. This means we are now able to to offer this programme to other children - HAP
