30 hours free childcare – managing the autumn term deadline

Over the next week, please encourage parents who want to take up a 30 hours place in the autumn term to apply now and no later than the end of June, to get their code in good time. HMRC sometimes needs more information from the parent to check whether they’re eligible, so parents should allow time for this. Childcare providers which close over the school holidays will wish to have secured their September intake well in advance of the end of term.

Please use the images below to post on your social media accounts, on your websites and to display on noticeboards in your setting.

We would also be grateful if you could continue to remind parents who already have an eligibility code to reconfirm their eligibility for 30 hours and / or Tax-Free Childcare every 3 months.
