Early Years Funding Consultation

Closed 15 Nov 2017

Opened 18 Oct 2017


The paper attached, which was considered by Schools Forum on 29 September, provides an outline of the proposal for Early Years Funding for 2018/19. We would like to invite you to read the document and to ask your opinion on some key elements of the proposal. We plan to present the results of the survey to the Schools Forum on 7 December 2017. The Survey will be open from Wednesday 18 October until Friday 10 November 2017.

The paper provides a breakdown of how the National Funding Formula will be apportioned, including additional funding for the implementation of 30 hours funded entitlement.

During this period of significant change and potential opportunities we have set out a proposal which we believe will provide the best possible support for Early Years providers, with particular focus on the most disadvantaged families, whilst ensuring that we continue to meet our statutory duties to ensure sufficient Early Education places.
