30hrs funded places or Full time places
Current government funding provides eligible children with 30 hrs free childcare. This is targeted at working parents. If you are interested and think you may be eligible please collect and fill in the Bristol City Council 30 hrs form and return to the school office. We will contact you to discuss with you. Funding depends on current working hrs and income. For this reason it cannot be established until the child is within a couple of months of starting.
