Funding Rules 2019 - Reminder

Dear Provider,

Just a quick reminder:

If you want to offer a funded place to a 2 year old, the parent must give you the slip from the bottom of a Walsall letter. If they have a code from another local authority, please ask the parent to contact Walsall FIS (01922 653383) to get a Walsall code.

If you want to offer an Extended Hours place (30 hours) to a new 3 or 4 year old this term, the eligibility code must have a start date before 31st December 2018, and an end date after 31st December 2018 (i.e. 01/01/2019 onwards). If the code doesn't fit this criteria, unfortunately, the child isn't entitled to the extra 15 hours this term.

If you are offering an Extended Hours place to a 3 or 4 year old who was in receipt of an Extended Hours place with you last term; as long as the Grace Period is after 31/12/2018, you can continue to offer them a place until their Grace Period ends (i.e. 31/03/2019 or 31/08/2019).

Thank you, Ross & Charley
