Hello All,

 

Is it a statutory requirement for Nursery classes within a Primary School, to offer their 15 hours entitlement as a two and a half day attendence pattern?

 

At present we have children attending, 5 mornings, 5 afternoons, or 2 and a half days.

 

How many schools out there are offering full days as a statutory obligation?

 

Thank you in anticipation.

Our children attend either 5 mornings or 5 afternoons. Older children in the morning younger in the afternoon.

 

Hope that helps

No it is not - you can offer the 15 hours anyway which your SM decide to suit. We are a nursery class in an Infant school and this is our second year of delivering the 15 hours over 2.5 and 2.5 days. We looked at all manor of ways to do this and splitting the week this way best suited how we could fit around the schools timetable.

Your school should have signed an agreement with the LA stating how it aims to meet the Code of Practice? At least that's how it works in pvi settings! We're about to be audited too to make sure we're delivering the FFE correctly :blink:

Same in our LA although I do wonder how much this is because the schools insist on it for their own organisation purposes. In the past they used to allow a split but the funding all went to the schools even if parents chose to send their child to a PVI setting for some of the 12.5/15 hours. That's called parental choice apparently!
