Further Information Regarding 30 Hours Provision

All Nursery age children qualify for 15 hours of free childcare, but you may be aware that the Government has extended the offer of free childcare to 30 hours for the children of working parents.  At Chapel Allerton Primary, we have also decided to offer 30 hours to families who are not eligible but would like to pay for the sessions.


30 Hours - Free

For a child to qualify for the extended entitlement free of charge they must fulfil the following criteria.

Both parents are working or the sole parent is working and earns on average:

  • A weekly minimum equivalent to 16 hours at minimum wage
  • Less than £100k/year


Families where one parent does not work (or neither parent works) will not be eligible.


30 Hours - Paying

For families who don’t qualify, children can attend F1 for the 30 hours by paying a fee of £75/week. This must be paid half termly in advance. More details will follow if you chose this option.


Parents may also be interested in wraparound care (before and after the school day). We are delighted to have Children’s Corner, who are based in our Dining Hall. They provide care from 7.30am and up until 6.00pm and can be contacted on 07510 841 859.
