Extended Entitlement Eligibility Codes

There were 2991 eligibility codes for the extended entitlement given to parents in Devon. We have validated 2090 codes (as of 9 August). This means there are still 901 parents with eligibility codes that have not had their codes validated. What to do?

  1. Ask parents if they are eligible and have codes
  2. Validate the codes now – codes need to be validated by 31 August to receive the extended entitlement from 1 September
  3. If parents are eligible but can not find childcare please ask them to complete the ‘Unable to find childcare form’

This is good news – compared with other local authorities we are in the top 15 of those who have validated the highest percentage of codes.
