Wraparound and Holiday Child Care
Parent and Childcare Provider “rights to request”
All parents/carers of children in Reception up to Year 9 have the right to request that the school their child attends considers establishing wraparound and/or holiday childcare.
You can refer to the guidance document issued by the Department for Education using the following link:
Childcare providers may also request to use school facilities for wraparound and/or holiday provision at times when the school is not using them.
By ‘wraparound childcare’ we mean before school childcare (for example, breakfast clubs), after school childcare (for example, regular provision that runs until 6pm or later). By ‘holiday childcare’ we mean childcare that is available through schools during the school holidays.
Each year there will be a timetable for the submission and processing of requests. The timetable for the 2017/18 academic year is as follows:
|Annual request window||1st February 2018 – 28th February 2018|
|Consideration of requests||1st March 2018 – 30th March 2018|
|Response to requests||20th April 2018|
Only requests received within the annual request window will be taken into account. All requests for Waddesdon Village Primary School to consider establishing wraparound childcare, should be addressed to the Headteacher, Laura Forchione via the school office or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org all requests should state:
If the school receives 25 or more requests from parents or any requests from childcare providers during the window, the school will consider the requests taking into account following points:
The timetable for the annual request window in 2018/19 will be published here in due course.
