If your child is already 3, but is waiting for funding, you can self-fund at a cost of £70 per week for 5 session of 3 hours, which equate to £14 per session. Due to financial viability, you would need to pay for all 5 sessions per week and that space would be kept for your child, whether they attended or not. They would be offered sessions in the afternoon, however if, when you child receives their funding, they would be eligible for 30 hours funding, it is possible that you child could attend both morning and afternoon sessions. Self-funding sessions can only be offered depending on the number of children who will be offered a funded place. When we are offering places, six weeks in advance of the start date, we will be able to confirm if a self-funded place is available. Payment for these sessions are payable in advance of the start of the term.
Ad-Hoc Nursery Sessions
If you child attends our Nursery part time, but you need an ad-hoc session, please contact the school office to see if we have availability. Please note the following conditions:-
- Sessions can only be booked a maximum of 2 weeks ahead
- Payment to be received at the time of booking - £15 per session
- Permanent nursery places will take priority over ad-hoc sessions
30 hours Funded Childcare From September 2017
As of September 2017 our Nursery Class offers extended hours to eligible parents under the '30 hours' scheme. The scheme is designed to help families where both parents work (even part time). To check your eligibility, follow the link below:
If you child is eligible they can attend for both the morning and afternoon sessions and they are also able to stay in school for the half-hour lunch break, at a charge of £4 per day which includes a hot meal, or £2 if you would prefer to bring a pack lunch.
If you are eligible, you are allowed to split your sessions between two providers. However, we ask that you use a minimum of 15 in our setting if you choose to do this, for our financial viabliity. From September 2018 you will not be able to split your sessions between two providers.
