30 Hour Nursery Provision
From September the school will be able to offer pupils within the nursery up to 30 hours of provision.
All Pupils are entitled to 15 hours of free nursery education (either morning or afternoon session). This is funded by the government.
Some families may be eligible for an extra 15 hours of “free nursery education”. To be eligible you must:
- Have both parents working
- Each parent must earn a weekly income over 16 hours at national minimum wage (£120 per week) and not more than £100 000 per year.
To apply and check eligibility go to: www.childcarechoices.gov.uk
If you are not eligible for additional ‘free’ nursery hours you may opt to pay for extra hours. The fee is £78 per week (£5.20 x 15 hours) for an additional 1/2 day session each day (including lunchtime supervision). All fees must be paid for fortnightly (in advance).
The number of 30 hour nursery places provided is limited so you are encouraged to apply early.
Additional paid for ‘ad-hoc’ hours may be possible in blocks of 3 hours. If available these are charged at £6.20 per hour (£18.60 for 3 hour session). Booked and paid for in advance.
