30 Hour Entitlement

Some children may be eligible for the 30 hours free entitlement - please see leaflet below.  To find out more or apply for the funding please contact Reading's Family Information Service at readingfis.org or call 0118-9373777 option 2 or email fis@reading.gov.uk.   We offer a limited number of places following our 30-hour admissions criteria.

How We Offer the 30 Hours

You can use your funding across the hours of 8.30am-11.30am & 12.30-3.30pm Monday to Friday term-time. The most you can use on any one day would be 6 hours (3 hours in the morning and 3 hours in the afternoon).  You don't have to use all 30 hours.  

We offer the 30 Hours funding over 38 weeks of the year and not all year round i.e. in holiday periods there is NO funding.

Funding is allocated termly so any in-term changes will not be funded. We can only claim for the hours that you are using at the beginning of each term.

If your child has an All Year Round contract there will still be an amount to pay for the hours not covered by funding.

If you wish to change to a Term-Time Only contract then you can extend the session times by using breakfast, lunch and tea clubs – Please note that Hot Lunch club is not available with a term-time only contract.
