Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) Programme
What is the Holiday Activities and Food Programme?
The Holiday Activities and Food Programme (HAF), funded by the Department for Education, provides free holiday club sessions. The free holiday clubs offer a wide range of activities, including sport, dance, drama, song writing and trips during the Easter, summer and winter school holidays. Children will also receive a nutritious meal whilst at the club.
Who is the Holiday Activities and Food Programme for?
The Holiday Activities and Food Programme is for school aged children from Reception to Year 11 who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals.
How do I book a place for my child?
From winter 2023, to book a place on the Holiday Activities and Food Programme you will require a unique code to prove that your child is eligible for benefits-related free school meals.
We advise parents or carers of children who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals to apply for their Derby HAF code before 22 November 2023. This will ensure you can book your child’s place on the winter HAF programme with ease.
