Holiday Activities and Food Programme:
Research has shown that the school holidays can be pressure points for some families. For some children this can lead to a holiday experience gap, with children from low- income households being:
-less likely to access organised out-of-school activities.
-more likely to experience ‘unhealthy holidays’ in terms of nutritional and physical health.
-more likely to experience social isolation.
Funded by the DfE, we are aiming to tackle these issues and have actively got involved in delivering The HAF Programme. This is a programme to support children and young people aged 4-16 years (reception to year 11) who are in receipt of pupil premium or free school meals (benefit related), to access enriching activities and a hot tasty meal and heathy snacks daily and is FREE admission.
The programme is on offer for up to 4 hours per day, 4 days per week, for a maximum of one week at Easter and Christmas and 4 weeks during the Summer.
Our HAF Programmes host a range of games and activities including the following;
- Fun Fitness with Coach
- Tag Games
- Circle Games
- Parachute Games
- Arts and Crafts
- Invasion Games
- Nutritional Education
- Fun Heathy Food Prep
We currently run programmes within the Bromley, Lewisham and Croydon boroughs. If your child has eligible status and you are interested in the programme, please contact their school for more information. If you are unsure about your child’s eligibility please click CHECK NOW to find out.
