Wraparound and Holiday Childcare
From September 2016 all parents of children in Reception up to Year 9 have the right to request wraparound and/or holiday childcare in the school their child attends.
Wraparound care includes early morning “breakfast club” provision, for example, as well as after-school childcare which extends beyond the end of the school day during term time and is also available in the school holidays.
