 "Living, loving and learning forever: 
 becoming the best as we journey together"

At both Payhembury and Awliscombe Primary Schools, we work closely together to offer the children the most varied and stimulating experiences to aim to always achieve the best outcomes for each individual child.   

You can choose morning, afternoon or all-day preschool sessions from Monday to Thursday. If your child would like to stay all day then they can either have school dinner (£2 a meal, payable via ParentPay) or you can provide a packed lunch. Free fruit and vegetables are provided at break time and you can choose to sign up to Cool Milk online at www.coolmilk.com/register.   

Due to the pandemic and the staggered start and end times for all children, our pre-school session times are currently as follows: 9.30 - 12pm – morning session (2.5 hours) 12.30 - 3pm – afternoon session (2.5 hours) 9.30 - 3pm – all day session (5.5 hours)   

The morning or afternoon session charges will cost £10.50 and an all-day session will cost £23.10. This equates to £4.20 per hr.   When we are able to return to ‘normal’ hours then pre-school will adhere to the following timings: 9.00 - 12pm – morning session (3 hours) 12.30 - 3.30pm – afternoon session (3 hours) 9.00 - 3.30pm – all day session (6.5 hours)   

The morning or afternoon session charges will cost £12.60 and an all-day session will cost £27.30. This equates to £4.20 per hour.   Funding for 15 or 30 hours is available the term after your child’s 3rd birthday. The 15 hours free funding will happen automatically, however, you will need to apply for the 30 hours free funding if you believe you are eligible. This needs to be done via the HMRC website and you will then need to provide us with the 30-hour code. Any non-funded hours will be invoiced to you termly by us and paid via Parent Pay.   
All school policies can be found on the FORT Federation website but should you require hard copies please be sure to request these from the office.
