Early Years at Embleton Primary caters for children from the term after their 3rd birthday. We currently offer both the 15-hours universal free entitlement to all 3 and 4 year olds and the 30-hours funding to those families eligible. Places need to be booked in advance and are booked for at least one term. If you require additional sessions, these are available on a first-come, first-served basis, dependent upon availability, at a cost of £10 per half day session and can be booked up to 1 day in advance through the school office.
All children will be able to either take up places as a school day (08.45-3.00) or half day (08.45-11.45 or 12.00-3.00).
From January 2018, there will be scope for those in receipt of the 30-hours funding to use some of their entitlement beyond the school day (7.30-8.45 or 3.00-5.30). Please speak to the office if you would be interested in accessing ‘wraparound’ childcare. Equally, this service will be provided as fee-paying for those not eligible for funding.
We work in partnership with Swansfield Park Primary School in Alnwick to offer childcare for 3 and 4 year-olds when the school is closed using the TicToc Holiday Club. We are able to split 30-hour funding across both settings if desired.

We run a weekly playgroup in school every Monday during term time for bumps to 4 year olds between 9.45 and 11.15. All are welcome – just come along!
