17.03.17  30 Hours Free Education

Dear Parents

As you are aware, all 3 and 4 year olds are entitled to 15 hours of free education per week.

From September 2017, some families will be able to access an additional 15 hours free education per week if both parents are working or the sole parent is working in a lone parent family.

The Government is funding the extension of the free education sessions, to support parents who currently work, wish to return to work, or to increase their hours. 

Although you cannot apply until July, you may want to start planning now for the extra entitlement. 

I am writing to inform you that this is something we will be offering at Moorgate Nursery School from September, and would urge you to seek further clarification if you think that you may be eligible. Further information about eligibility is available at

Moorgate Local Authority Maintained Nursery School, is a school with fully qualified Teachers and has the same requirements as Primary Schools. 

If you follow the internet link, the title reads ’30 Hours free Childcare’.

However, if you choose to send your child to a Private Nursery setting or a Local Authority Maintained Nursery school (Like Moorgate), eligible 3-4 year old children will be receiving education sessions and not childcare.

I am currently in the process of agreeing with the Governing Body about how we propose to offer the 30 hours as a school. However, please contact me if you would like any further information., telephone 01695 573470.
