Sessions poster

We offer nursery sessions to support the Free Early Education Entitlement Grant for 2 and 3 year old children. This means that children who are eligible, are entitled for 15 hours of free nursery childcare. 

To check your eligibility for the Free Early Education Entitlement, please click on the link or pop into school and we can help you. 

There are also additional funded hours for working parents of 3 and 4 year old children. Please click on the link below to see if you are entitled to the extra 15 hours of nursery childcare. 

We work hard to support families in selecting nursery sessions which suit their needs. Please speak to a member of the nursery team who will be more than happy to discuss your preferred nursery sessions.  Below is a list of possible session options. 

You can use your free 15 or 30 hour entitlement grant in a range of ways. Please select your preferred option and we will endeavour to meet your requests.

Option 1 – Five morning sessions- 8:45am – 11:45am.
Option 2 – Two full days and an afternoon session*
Option 3 – Two full days and a morning session (charge of £2.00 to cover lunch care). *
Option 4 – 30 hours free childcare five full days 8:45am –  3:15pm (charge of £5.00 to cover lunch care).

* A charge of £15 is made if you would like to increase your child’s nursery sessions to attend for three full days. Any lunch care charges would be removed.

If children attend for full days, they can either bring a packed lunch from home or have a cooked meal provided by the nursery for an additional charge of £2.25 per day. Please note if you are eligible for Free School Meals this charge will reduce to £0.
