Some frequently asked questions

Do you offer the Early Years Entitlement?

Yes children can attend for up to 30 hours of funded time.  Parents then pay for time and resources outside of the free entitlement. We receive all the paperwork from the Local Authority – parents just have to sign it in school and provide a copy of your child’s birth certificate.

At what age are children eligible for Early Years Entitlement?

Children become eligible at the beginning of  the term after their third birthday until the end of the term in which they turn five.

Are there any bursaries available for school aged children

Unfortunately we do not have any bursaries or scholarships available.

Can I pay in instalments?

Fees are due at the beginning of each term but we are happy for parents to arrange to make monthly payments to spread the cost of fees.
