We are happy to inform you that we are able to offer places of 30 hour provision in our Nursery each year. These places will be offered on the criteria of age, so older children will get the first chance to take up the places.

If you are interested and think you may be entitled please follow the local authority guidance below.

You will be eligible for 30 hours if the criteria below apply to you:

  • both parents must be working (or the sole parent is working in a lone parent family), and each parent earns a weekly minimum equivalent to 16 hours at national minimum wage or living wage, and less than £100,000 per year
  • working will include employed and self-employed persons
  • in general families where one parent does not work (or neither parent works) will not be eligible for these additional hours
  • both parents are employed but one or both parents is temporarily away from the workplace on parental, maternity or paternity leave
  • both parents are employed but one or both parents is temporarily away from the workplace on adoption leave
  • both parents are employed but one or both parents is temporarily away from the workplace on statutory sick pay
  • one parent is employed and one parent has substantial caring responsibilities based on specific benefits received for caring or one parent is employed and one parent is disabled or incapacitated based on receipt of specific benefits.
You can check eligibility at www.childcarechoices.gov.uk Please note that, in order to receive a funded place, you must obtain a code from this website and inform the School of this code. This code must then be updated every 3 months.

If you are not eligible under this criteria but would still like to take up the 30 hour provision, please speak to Mrs Hicks or Mrs Rogers in the school office to discuss alternative payment opportunities.

Children attending nursery can also access our Breakfast & After School Club. For your information, Breakfast club starts at 7.30am (£4) and After School club runs until 5.45pm (£9).

If you have any questions regarding this process, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Hicks.

We very much look forward to welcoming your child into our School family.
