Government Early Years Funding Entitlement (EYFE)

We offer a pre-reception nursery school year, for 3-4 year olds, based on a full-time Monday to Friday offering.
Our 4-5 year olds join one of our Reception classes.

Children aged 3 and 4 are entitled to access 15 hours of EYFE a week for up to 38 weeks of the year. Your child qualifies for this from the academic term following their third birthday until the end of the term of your child’s fifth birthday.

The EYFE at The Abbey is offered between the hours of 12.30pm – 15.30pm within a package of in-school education, subject to availability. This is offered over the full school week, Monday to Friday inclusive, over our academic year of 34 weeks.

The EYFE is shown on termly fee invoices. Any additional optional services (eg After School Care) are charged in addition and are invoiced separately. There are a variety of EY providers locally offering EYFE. Some may offer the funded entitlement only, without access to any additional services, others offer it over more or fewer hours of the week. Parents are advised to choose a service provider which best meets their needs. We offer term time sessions only over a 34 week academic year.


Childcare Vouchers

Childcare vouchers are accepted for payment of qualifying charges, i.e. school fees up to the age of 5 and activities that take place on school premises and outside school hours. Please contact the Finance Department on feesbilling@theabbey.co.uk for further information on the use of childcare vouchers.


Sibling discount

We offer a 5% sibling discount for the eldest child when three pupils attend The Abbey at the same time.
