Families that receive 15 hours of funded childcare can pay for additional hours where available, at a cost of £5.00 per hour.

Abbey Gates also offers up to 30 hours of funded childcare for eligible families. These hours can be shared with other childcare providers. Parents should state their preference for sessions on the form provided by the school office and sessions will be allocated where possible.

There is a daily charge of £4.50 for lunchtime cover if your child stays all day.

Please be aware that a place in F1 does not guarantee a full-time statutory place.

Parents and children will be invited to a meeting prior to the start date to confirm sessions required/available.

In the event of over subscription to F1, the same admission guidelines as Nottinghamshire County Council will be applied.
