School-aged children and young people (primary and secondary) who are in receipt of benefit-related free school meals can receive 16 sessions at HAF provisions during the Summer holidays at no cost. 

The sessions will include a range of activities and all food is also included for free.

As a parent of one of our students, you may be entitled to free school meals on a daily basis. This could represent a daily amount of £2.20, making approximate savings to you of £418 per school year.

This saving will benefit you as a family but would also help you support your school, providing £430 per annum, per student in the school budget.

We are happy to help you achieve this saving.
