Early Years

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.
