  • How do parents secure their place?

    If a parent is approved for the additional 15 hours extended funding they will receive an 11 digit ‘eligibility code’ for their child.  The code will start with ‘5000’, however a small number of cases may have a temporary code starting with ‘11’.  Parents should bring this code to the School Office in order for the funding to be claimed.  We will need to record your eligibility code, National Insurance number and the child’s date of birth.  Parent must show evidence of their National Insurance number and child’s date of birth prior to a check being undertaken.  Parents will also need to sign the attached permission in order for us to check their eligibility.  

For support or more information please contact our business manager, Mrs Janice Jackson, in the main school office.
