Take a look at this video to see some of our previous HAF sessions:

 

*South Gloucestershire Council has commissioned us to provide free places for children who get benefits-related free school meals (not universal infant free school meals) through Department for Education (DfE) funding. We can use this funding allocation to provide free places for children who are not in receipt of benefits-related free school meals but who the local authority believe could benefit from HAF provision. These could include children and young people from the following groups:

-children assessed by the local authority as being in need, at risk or vulnerable
– young carers
– looked-after children or previously looked after children
– children with an EHC plan (education, health and care)
– children with refugee status
