Inclusive provision

The HAF programmes are available to eligible children who have special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and our providers endeavour to meet all children’s needs. Please provide as much information as possible about your child's needs when completing your registration form.

Our programme providers will contact you prior to the start date to discuss your child's needs and to plan for any adjustments that are required.  If a provider is not able to meet your child's needs, we will signpost you to alternative provision that may be more suitable.
