Holiday Activities and Food Programme (HAF)

Holiday  Activities and  Food Programme  (HAF)  logo


The Holiday Activities and Food programme (HAF) is a Government funded programme that provides free holiday clubs for reception to year 11 pupils in receipt of benefits-related free school meals. 

In West Northamptonshire the Holiday Activities and Food programme is known as - HAF Northants. The team delivering HAF Northants is Northamptonshire Sport. Using their understanding of activities and fun things to do in Northamptonshire (sport and more) they have handpicked a directory of enriching activities. Please see the Northamptonshire Sport website to find out more about our HAF providers including how to book and the type of activities that we have available here.

School aged children from reception to Year 11 in receipt of benefits related free school meals have priority in accessing government funded HAF clubs for free.

If you are unsure whether you are eligible, please apply for free school meals.

There is discretion to use up to 15% of funding to provide free or subsidised holiday club places for children who are not in receipt of benefits-related Free School Meals but who could benefit from HAF. Please discuss with your school, setting or by contacting Northamptonshire Sport at [email protected] if you feel that you or your child would benefit from HAF provision.
