Halifax Child Savings a/c

I pay a nominal amount each month into each of my children's bank accounts, had a statement today from the Halifax with the amount of interest they'd earned for the year which was £19.03 but had £3.80 tax deducted.

I was under the impression that kids a/c's are exempt if under a certain amount. They have no other income than this, do you think I should just call the Halifax or are there forms to fill or should they be paying it?
