For the Autumn term, children DOBs will be 01/09/17 – 31/08/19 (and who are not in a school reception place)
Codes must be checked on the provider’s checker prior to offering the place.
For extended hours beginning in the Autumn term:
- Validity Start Date must be before 31/08/2022
- Validity End Date must be after 01/09/2022
If the validity end date is prior to the 01/09/2022, then the code is in the Grace Period. Grace Periods become active if parents fall out of eligibility or fail to reconfirm their code
Please note, grace periods are for continuation of the extended funded hours at a provider, children cannot start the additional hours when in a grace period.
