For those parents who are not eligible for the additional hours we will continue to offer 15 hour standard places for AM sessions with the option to purchase afternoon sessions at £15 per session.

Parents claiming “additional” hours will be required to register via the government website to confirm eligibility and to obtain a validation code on a termly basis. It is important to note that without a validation code for the current term, the school will be unable to claim the funding for your child. Those who do not provide a code when requested to do so will be subject to standard afternoon session charge.
