Frequently Asked Questions

My child has a medical condition, allergy, medication?

If your child has a medical condition, allergy, takes any medication, or has an ECHP plan from school, please make us aware on the booking system and on any food order form (if allergy / food related).

The HAF team will review this information before the day your child attends, to make sure that we can provide the best experience for your child, and to make any relevant staff aware. Letting us know this information in advance can help us to make the club a better experience for your child.

What does each day involve in the HAF Programme?

Every HAF session with Magna Vitae will involve active sessions, a free meal, food education and crafts. The sports or crafts will vary depending on the session and venue.

What does my child need to wear when attending the HAF Programme?

Please dress your child in comfortable, casual clothes suitable for active sessions, the weather, and that you don’t mind getting messy from any crafts or food. Your child will also need to bring a coat, and preferable be wearing trainers.

What drinks will be provided during the HAF Programme?

Water will be provided at all HAF venues and dates. Water bottles can also be refilled during the sessions. We ask where possible that children only bring water or milk with them to drink.

What food will be provided during the HAF Programme?

A healthy meal will be provided at every HAF session. Food menus will be sent out to all those with confirmed bookings before the day.  Any allergies or food preferences should be noted on the booking form and on the food ordering form.

How to book the HAF Programme?

Please use the link provided with your child’s Evoucher code to book using the online booking system. You will be able to see all HAF venues, providers and spaces available on this booking system.


What are the ages for the HAF programme?

Funding for the HAF programme covers ages 5-16 years. The ages able to attend each HAF programme can vary. Please see the booking system for the ages allowed at each venue or provider.

Magna Vitae’s HAF teen programme is for 14 – 16 years.

What if my child doesn’t like the activities?

We encourage all children to have a go at the activities, even if they don’t like it or feel they are bad at it. We don’t force children to take part but if they don’t want to join in we ask them to  assist in other ways like keeping score and setting out equipment.

We always involve children and no child will ever be left out!

Will my child be looked after properly?

Of course! Our delivery team are experienced, qualified and are fully trained. Each member of staff holds a valid DBS check and is trained in First Aid.

What if my child doesn’t know anyone?

We encourage children to mix with each other right from the start and we never leave anyone out. Our first games and activities are icebreakers, ideal for those children who may not know anyone.

What does my child need to bring with them?

Your child will need lunch, a water bottle (preferably refillable), snacks, sun hat and sun cream and a waterproof coat (which hopefully we won’t need to use!)
