Early Year Educational Entitlement (EYEE)

Sacred Heart School participates in the Government’s Early Years Educational Entitlement Scheme, which finances up to 15 hours per week of free Foundation Stage Education for eligible 3 and 4 year olds. Sacred Heart School provides this entitlement in 3 hour sessions which are embedded within the morning and afternoon sessions set out above, during the School terms.

Sacred Heart School will apply for the funding on your behalf at the beginning of term once you have registered your child at the school.

When can you start claiming your 3 year olds free childcare?

  • If your child turns 3 between 1 January and 31 March you can start claiming the free childcare from April.
  • If your child turns 3 between 1 April and 31 August you can start claiming from September.
  • If your child turns 3 between 1 September and 31 December you can start claiming from January.

Fees applicable to those children who are in the Foundation Stage of the School and who are entitled to receive free early years education under the Government’s Early Years Education initiative are set out on a separate sheet below.
