Urgent Request – EYSFF Cost Capturing Survey – deadline now extended to 30 November

Neil Reader, November 19, 2015

Due to the current situation regarding possible changes to Early Years funding from central Government, it is important that the local authority has as much information as possible with regards to costs within childcare settings. If you have not done so already please take a few minutes to complete the Cost Capturing Survey to enable us to have a better understanding of how the current EYSFF rates support early years education provision; and also to ascertain if there are potential gaps in funding.

For further details and to access the survey see here.

Thank you for your help.

Two Year Old In-Period Claims Needed ASAP

Neil Reader, October 16, 2015

You will recall in the autumn headcount letter we let you know that the DfE are giving the local authority an opportunity to submit further information about the number of claims in the autumn period. This will help us to ensure that Hampshire has adequate funding for the year as the two year old claims still rise.
We need your help to ensure we have captured all the two year claims possible.
