Proposed Change of Age-Range from 4-11 years to 2-11 years

We're proposing to change the age-range of Bysing Wood Primary School from 4-11 years to 2-11 years to enable the school to establish a school run nursery provision in the accommodation on the school site that was previously occupied by a private Pre-School provider. If the proposal is agreed, it is planned to open the nursery by 01 September 2019, or earlier if feasible. More information can be found in the consultation letter found in the document section below.

The Commissioning Plan for Education Provision in Kent 2018-2022 sets out our commissioning intentions for education and how we will carry out our responsibility for early education and childcare. This includes overarching aims to meet the duty on all local authorities in the Childcare Act 2016:

  • to improve outcomes for young children
  • secure sufficient childcare to allow parents to work
  • ensure sufficient and flexible childcare including 15 hours of early education for eligible 2 year olds and all 3 and 4 year olds and 30 hours of free childcare for all 3 and four year olds of eligible parents.

A copy of the plan can be viewed from this link: www.kent.gov.uk/educationprovision
