Parental eligibility

To apply for the Childcare Offer you will need to complete an on-line application form.

Parents, guardians, step-parents and co-habiting partners will all need to meet the eligibility criteria in order for a child living within that household to be able to take up the offer.

Please note the application form does time out. Please complete it in one go, it is not possible to save it and come back to it at a later point.

This application is for the Childcare Offer CHILDCARE HOURS ONLY – to apply for the Foundation Phase Nursery (Early Education) hours see the Nursery Admissions on the School Admissions page.

  • Copy of child’s birth certificate
  • Proof of address – Latest Council Tax Bill or an utility bill dated within the last 3 months
  • Last three months’ pay slips for all applicants

Your application will be processed much faster if you are able to attach your evidence to the application.

  • If you are self-employed please provide a copy of your most recent self-assessment Tax return form known as SA103
  • If you are a relatively new self-employed person you will be required to provide proof of your Unique Tax Reference number from the HMRC
