Early Years Funding

As a member of the Suffolk Early Years Partnership all children are entitled to Early Years Funding direct from the government in the term AFTER they turn three. This funding is paid direct to the school on completion of a Parent Declaration Form and lasts until the child enters full time school. 2 year old funding is also available for eligible children. Parents must complete and sign the form declaring the number of hours they intend their child to attend (up to 15 hours) per week. Parent Declaration forms will be issued in the last week of the term before your child is eligible for the grant and have to be completed each term. Evidence must be provided of a child’s date of birth (eg birth certificate, passport etc.).
