Under the government childcare scheme, the school offers up to 15 hours a week of funded nursery provision free of charge, from the term after the child’s third birthday until they start school in the reception class or reach the age of compulsory education.
Working parents may also be eligible for up to 30 hours a week for three and four year-old children. Up to 15 hours a week of this may be used at Kingham Primary School, as long as the child is not at more than two sites in one day. Parents may also use extended hours to stretch childcare outside term time with other providers.
Parents of any child with a place in the nursery may elect to pay for additional sessions, subject to availability, at the rate of £15.00 per three-hour session, up to a total of 30 hours a week, including the free entitlement. That is equivalent to £75.00 per week. There is no requirement to purchase extra hours in order to receive the entitlement of 15 free hours.
Fees will be invoiced monthly in advance, with booking for any individual sessions invoiced monthly in arrears.
