30 Hours Childcare Consultation

You may be aware that the government plans to change the hours of funded childcare for 3 and 4 year olds available to families from September 2017. The current universal entitlement for all 3 and 4 years olds will continue to be 15 hours per week for 38 weeks (570 hours) of free early education The new entitlement is an extension of the current entitlement and provides an additional 15 hours of free childcare for children where parents are eligible. For further information on the eligibility criteria, follow the link below.


The governing body at Penruddock Primary School have decided to create a questionnaire to be completed by parents considering sending their child(ren) to nursery here at Penruddock. The information from this survey will be treated in the strictest confidence and will enable the school to review our current nursery provision and consider possible future changes to that service to reflect changing national policy. Please can we urge parents of children younger than school age to complete the online survey in order to enable us to make informed plans. The survey can be found with further information on the school website under “Extended Services”. Alternatively, you can simply follow the link below.
