Somerset offers 570 hours per year of Early Years Entitlement (EYE) for three and four year olds. These can be accessed in our setting.

The maximum number of hours a week that can be claimed is 15 hours.  Your EY entitlement will be calculated based on the length of the session (in hours).
For 2016/17 this free entitlement is worth £3.99 an hour. This is your free funding entitlement, free to all parents at the point of delivery.

Our hourly charge/rate is slightly more as we provide:
·                     A fully qualified teacher in charge of the Nursery
·                     Computing lessons from qualified teachers
·                     Music lessons from qualified teachers
·                     The ‘10 Gems’ developmental sessions delivered by a qualified teacher
·                     Nursery trips and outings using the school minibus
·                     Meals and snacks
·                     Use of the Wellington School facilities
As these extra services come with additional costs, we are able to charge a small fee in addition to the Early Years Entitlement funding.  While one way to tackle this would be to levy a charge on each of these events individually, this would be very complex (e.g. attempting to apportion the marginal cost of the teacher’s expertise to each child) and cumbersome.  Instead a small ‘extras’ charge, which equates to approximately £0.75 per hour, is added to cover this funding gap because while not all ‘part-time’ children will necessarily access all of these additional services, all will access some of them.

If your child attends another setting as well as Wellington School, you can split the hourly entitlement and funding too. The maximum numbers of providers/settings you can attend at any one time is two.

Wellington School accepts childcare vouchers towards payment of some elements of the service we provide. However, there are restrictions on their use and acceptance by care providers.
Broadly, the School can accept payment by childcare vouchers until a child reaches the age of five. This is due to this supply being considered as ‘care’, as opposed to ‘tuition’.
Tuition given to children aged 5 and over and forming part of their compulsory education is specifically excluded from being allowed for childcare voucher purposes.
Similarly, HM Revenue and Customs do not allow the use of childcare vouchers towards payment for music lessons, sports coaching and the like if they take place during the normal school day – including lunch breaks.
Childcare vouchers can be used towards payment for chargeable after-school and holiday clubs. They may also be accepted for certain extra-curricular activities which take place on School or other premises covered by Ofsted or ISI inspection. Again, there is an exclusion for extra-curricular activities which take place on premises not covered by school inspection.
Childcare vouchers can be used towards payment for boarding up to 1 September following a child’s 15th birthday.
If you would like any additional information about childcare vouchers, please contact the School Accounts Office.
