Using Tax-Free Childcare to pay for Breakfast Club
Tax-Free Childcare or Childcare Vouchers
Tax-Free Childcare and childcare vouchers are both government schemes designed to help with childcare costs.
Tax-Free Childcare is a government scheme that pays 20% of childcare costs up to a maximum of £2,000 each year. Tax-Free Childcare is a UK-wide scheme covering England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
The scheme is open to all parents of children under 12 (or under 17 if disabled). To apply, you must open a Tax-Free Childcare account online.
Check if you're eligible for Tax-Free Childcare, how to apply and how to pay your childcare provider.
Childcare Vouchers and other employer schemes.
The following schemes are closed to new applicants:
· childcare vouchers
· childcare your employer arranges with a provider (known as ‘directly contracted childcare’)
If you joined one of these schemes on or before 4 October 2018 you might be able to keep getting vouchers or directly contracted childcare.
Bookings for Breakfast club are usually made through ParentPay, however, ParentPay is unable to accept Tax-Free Childcare or Childcare Voucher (CCV) funds directly, so there is a process in place to enable you to use your vouchers to pay for Breakfast Club. The funding is sent directly to the BWMAT bank account and is then allocated to each school.
Process for booking and paying for Breakfast Club if using Tax-Free childcare as payment:
Please notify the school office by email, of the days required for the term and your preferred payment method (e.g., Tax Free Childcare or Childcare Voucher). Please do not book your child onto ParentPay, as we will do this for you. This will then show as a "debt" on ParentPay for Breakfast Club, which is the amount required for payment.
After School Club runs from Monday to Thursday, from 3.15pm to 6.00pm. The club is run by Super Pirates. The club offers fun activities including games, arts and crafts. A healthy snack is also provided.
After School Club sessions cost £13.00 each.
All sessions are payable in advance and childcare vouchers are accepted. Bookings should be made directly with Super Pirates, via their webpage:
