30 hours eligibility

To be eligible for 30 hours free childcare, you must earn less than £100,000 per annum and meet one of a list of criteria. If you would like to know more about the 30 hour entitlement please visit https://www.gov.uk/childcarechoices.gov.uk or call 0300 123 4097.

 

Buying additional sessions

Some parents will be entitled to 30 hours free childcare, however, parents who are entitled to 15 hours will be able to purchase additional time at the rate of £13.00 per half day or £26.00 per full day. Payment systems are in the process of being set up. We hope to offer payment by ParentMail, childcare vouchers and direct debit (more information to follow). All payments must be made in advance for the full half term.

 

Lunchtimes

Nursery children, who are staying all day, can pay for a school meal (£1.90 per day). Further information will follow at the beginning of the term about how to pay for school meals.

 

Early Nursery Admissions

Children can now be admitted to our Nursery during the term that they turn 3 years old, rather than waiting until the following September. Please contact the school office for further information.

 

Conditions

In applying for, and accepting, a nursery place at our school you will be entering an agreement to use your initial 15 free hours with our school.
