30 Hour Nursery Funding


We  accommodate three and four year old children up to 30 hours' worth of funded sessions per week.

Bodriggy offer all three and four year olds 15 hours' worth of free early education and childcare before they start school.  In addition we offer 30 hours to parents who have access to the funding.  

The 30 hours of free provision is available for families :

1 - Where both parents are working (or the sole parent is working in a lone-parent family) and each parent  earns the equivalent of 16 hours a week at the national minimum wage.


2 - Where you have a partner and one of you gets the following benefits:

  • Carer's Allowance
  • Employment and Support Allowance
  • Incapacity Benefit
  • Severe Disablement Benefit


Bodriggy Academy will be extending our provision in line with the Government recommendations.


We offer additional wraparound care for our 3 and 4 year old children through our Breakfast and Afterschool Clubs.
