Childcare Charging Policy (April 16)

CONTRACTED BOOKINGS

We offer 2 different contracts for childcare

  • Term time only. These will suit people who only wish to book when schools are open. If places are required during school holidays they will need to be booked at the office at least a week in advance to ensure that there is space.
  • Full Year Contracts. These will suit people who require year round childcare, as they will guarantee a place both in term time and in the school holidays

Purchasable hours are between 8.00 a.m. and 6.00 p.m. The 15 free hours must be specified on the booking form. Additional time can be booked if there is space.

The 15 hours free nursery education for 3 and 4 year olds can be taken as full or half days between the hours of 9.00am and 3.00pm. Half days are 9.00am to 12.00 or 12.00 to 3.00pm and extra time can be purchased. Free early learning hours for 2 year olds will be agreed individually.

Childcare is unavalable on all Bank Holidays, August Bank Holiday week, Christmas week and five training days through the year.

THERE WILL BE NO CHARGE WHEN THE SCHOOL IS CLOSED.

ABSENCES

  • In the case of absence the full rate will be charged
  • In case of long term illness, please speak to some-one in the office.

RECEIPTS

Receipts will be given at the time of payment and a statement of childcare costs is available on request. Please keep your receipt as proof of payment.

PAYMENTS

Payments will be agreed at the time of booking and a contract signed. Payments can be made by cheque, cash, standing order or vouchers. If cheques are returned by the bank, parents will be responsible for all charges incurred. If parents miss a payment they should make an appointment to discuss the matter at the school office.

We reserve the right to withdraw childcare if no agreement is reached.

All debts will be passed to the debt collectors at the Town Hall.

If Benefit Fraud is suspected we reserve the right to report it to the Inland Revenue.
