30 Hours Funding

From September 2017 Riverside will be offering 30 hour funded places for eligible 3 and 4 year old children.

The government will be providing 30 hours free childcare for working parents of 3 & 4 year olds, to support working families or families entering work, who meet government set criteria.

The additional 15 hours free entitlement on top of the existing universal provision of 15 hours will be available to families where:

Both parents are working (or the sole parent in a lone parent family);

Each parent has a weekly minimum income to 16 hours at a national wage or living wage; and

Neither parent has an income of more than £100,000 per year.

To find out if your child is eligible for a 30 hour funded place, please CLICK HERE or ring 0300 123 4097.

We will be offering 30 hour funded places in line with our current nursery sessions that run from 8:45am until 11:45am and 12:15pm until 3:15pm. Children must bring a packed lunch into school, unfortunately, we are unable to offer F1 children school meals.

If you think your child is eligible for 30 hours funding please complete the form online and see the school office to give them your 30 hour funded code.

Each code will last for three months. Parents will need to recheck every 3 months.

If you have any further questions, please speak to the nursery staff or contact the school office.
