4. What is HAF?
The Holiday Activity Fund, is a Government initiative to support low income families, during Easter, Summer and Christmas holidays.
This holiday provision is for school aged children from reception to year 11 (inclusive) who receive benefits-related free school meals.
Benefits-related free school meals (FSM) are available to pupils if their parents are in receipt of one of the qualifying benefits, and have a claim verified by their school or local authority.
When we receive HAF funding for our holiday sessions, sessions will always be FREE.
More information regarding HAF can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/holiday-activities-and-food-programme/holiday-activities-and-food-programme-2021

6. My child has a support need and requires a 121 with staff?
We would love to support children with 121’s, however we are not able to provide this support currently.
If we find you have given false information, regarding the support needs of your child, staff have the right to ask you to come and collect your child immediately from the session and have the right to refrain you from booking your child/children on to any of our future sessions.
7. How we use your data?
We ask for personal details, so we are aware of any medical, health and support needs, to help keep children safe at our sessions and to ensure their needs are met safely. Parent/Carer details are taken, in case of an emergency.
Data is only passed on to any third party organisations regarding funding requirements or if there is a safeguarding issue. For our Winter HAF Sessions, all personal details and any safeguarding issues will be shared with The Hubb Foundation.

13. How do I make a complaint about a HAF Session?
If your child is not between the ages of 4-12 years old, WE ARE NOT INSURED!
Our staff have the right to ask for proof of age for children, refuse entry, or ask you to come and collect your child immediately, if we find that children are not within the 4-12 years age range.
Unfortunately, we have had many families giving false information, regarding the age of children.
You are putting our organisation at risk as we are not insured! We will not tolerate this and will take the appropriate action.
