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.

 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.
