Early Years Autumn Period 2020 Funding Survey

Closed 16 Sep 2020

Opened 24 Jul 2020


The DfE has now issued guidance (20th July 2020) on how funded hours should be applied in the Autumn funded period 2020. 

From the start of the autumn term 2020, local authorities should continue to fund providers which are open at broadly the levels they would have expected to see in the 2020 autumn term had there been no coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. They should also continue to fund providers which have been advised to close, or left with no option but to close, due to public health reasons. Local authorities should not fund providers which are closed, without public health reason, from the start of the autumn term.

Why we are consulting

All providers must have indicated, through a new Early Years Autumn Period 2020 Funding Survey, whether they are going to be open or closed at the beginning of the Autumn period 2020, if they wish to receive an estimate payment.

Thank you for taking this survey. Please note we will ask you to provide some personal data. This will include your name and surname, as well as your Ofsted URN and DfE URN. We will use this information to faciltate estimate payments for the Autumn funded period 2020.
