Government funding starts the term after a child’s birthday, but you can pay for a place before you receive funding if you chose to.

The main times children start are September, January and April but children can start at different times by arrangement.

We have a breakfast club open from 8.00 a.m. and an after school club open until 5.30 p.m. We are a school, so only open during term time.

Children usually settle in quickly and parents/carers are welcome to stay with children during their settling in period.

From January 2024 we will be offering the following sessions:

Breakfast Club

8am to 9am     (1 hour)

Morning Session

9am to 12pm   (3 hours)

Afternoon Session

12pm to 3pm   (3 hours)

All day session

9am to 3pm     (6 hours)

Afterschool Session 1

3pm to 4pm     (1 hour)

Afterschool Club Session 2

4pm to 5pm     (1 hour)

Late Afterschool Club

5pm -5.30pm   (30 minutes)


We do ask that the attendance pattern you choose using your 15 or 30 hours is set for a full term. You can use your child’s 15 or 30-hour funding to access breakfast and after school club or if you wish you can ‘top-up’ and add any additional sessions on to your ‘core’ offer at the cost of £6.00 per hour.

You can pick and mix sessions to suit your needs. For example, if your child was entitled to 15 hours you could choose to attend:

•           5 x Mornings


•           5 x Afternoons


•           2 x All Day Sessions and 1 x morning


•           1 x full day and 3 x morning sessions


•           2 x Breakfast Club and 2x full day then 1 x 1 hour afterschool club


If you want to go over your allocated 15 or 30-hours then that is absolutely fine. Any additional sessions are charged at £6.00 per hour and these can be paid for with childcare vouchers, via tax-free childcare or by cash/cheque.  You can either request additional sessions now or simply book in by speaking to the office.

However, if you will need the sessions regularly, we recommend you reserve the spaces now as the Government are planning to increase the availability of funded childcare from April 2024 for working parents and we anticipate that this will mean more children will be eligible for a space and this could therefore limit our availability.
