As you may already be aware, Staffordshire’s Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) is a programme of activities during the summer holidays for children who are eligible for free school meals.

 

We’re launching a campaign today to encourage parents to check whether their child is eligible for a free place and sign up for the scheme from Monday 5th July.

 

Please share information about the scheme with your networks, colleagues and contacts to encourage parents/carers to check their eligibility and register on 5th July.

 

I’ve set out some brief information about the scheme below, along with a suggested social media post to let parents know that registration opens soon. A PDF poster, suitable for sharing by email is also attached.
