    or
  • demonstrate that their child is eligible for Free School Meals
    (see attached Free School Meals application form to check eligibility)
    or
  • be a child of a service family
    or

If you are eligible for the 30 Hours’ Free Childcare funding you need to apply for it here - https://www.gov.uk/sign-in-childcare-account and enter your information. The process may take up to 20 minutes to complete.  You will then be provided with a code which you can send to the school office.
