How to claim Free Early Education Entitlement

Kelvedon Primary Academy will be able to claim funding from Essex County Council. The funding is paid directly to the academy on a termly basis. Each term Kelvedon Academy will ask you to sign a parent/carer agreement form. The form is your commitment to that childcare provider for your child’s place for that term. Kelvedon Primary Academy will then submit the form to Essex County Council to claim your Free Early Education Entitlement for the next term.

Some parents/carers are entitled to up to 30 hours funding. Further details can be found by clicking the link here:
