30 hours' free childcare can be used for lunch club, afternoon or afterschool sessions, which are run by our wraparound care provider Rialize. Bridgewater School have been working closely with Rialize for a number of years.Parents will need to provide evidence of their 30 hours’ eligibility code before being offered a 30 hours’ place. https://www.gov.uk/help-with-childcare-costs/free-childcare-and-education-for-2-to-4-year-olds
At Bridgewater School and Rialize the school day is more than 6 hours a day and so more than 30 hours a week. If you choose to use your full 30 hours’ free childcare this will be made up of just over 4.5 school days.
4 days x 8.30am-3pm (6.5 hours) is 26 hours PLUS half a day (8.30am-12.30pm) of 4 hours = 30 hours
Each day includes Rialize Lunch Club and you will need to supply a nut fee packed lunch for your child.
If you want to pay for more than your 30 hours’ free provision the following hours can be paid for:
* Rialize Breakfast Club - 7.30am - 8.30am @ £8 (breakfast included)
* A fifth Rialize Afternoon Session of the week which falls outside the 30 free hours (as outlined above) - 12.30-3pm (2.5 hours @ £13.50)
* Rialize After School Club - 3pm - 6pm @ £16 (tea provided)
