Nursery 30 hour funding
From September 2017 many working parents of 3 to 4 year olds in England will be eligible for 30 hours of funded childcare, rather than the current 15 hours. At Eastway Primary school we propose that this will be 30 hours free for 38 weeks per year, which is equivalent to school term times.
Please visit www.gov.uk/help-with-childcare-costs/free-childcare-and-education-for-2-to-4-year-olds for more advice, or call 0300 123 4097 if you are having difficulties gaining the 30 hour eligibility code for Nursery.
Not every child will be eligible for the 30 hours but everyone will still receive the 15 hours funded childcare that is currently available.
The eligibility rules for 30 hours funded childcare are as follow:
- Your child will be aged 3 or 4 when the scheme starts (September 2017).
- Both parents must be working - or the sole parent is working in a lone parent family.
- Each parent earns, on average, a weekly minimum equivalent to 16 hours at National Minimum Wage or National Living Wage.
- Each parent must have an annual income of less than £100,000.
- You live in England.
If you have not yet gained your 30 hour eligibility code please call 0300 123 4097.
You will need to give in your 30 Hour Code to the school office if offered a place. We cannot guarantee 30 hour places, but will do our best to accommodate everyone’s needs. Please see our admissions policy for further guidance on admissions.
