Under 5's


The Flying Start Foundation Unit is located at, and run by, Parkham Primary School and opened in September 2014 catering for 3-5 year olds. Please see details below for further information or contact the school. The Unit now offers  8.45 am to 3.30 pm provision all week (except Friday) and admits children in the term in which they turn 3. Children are only eligible for the 3 year olds 15 hour funding from the term after they turn 3. So if your child starts in the term in which they turn 3 you will be invoiced for these hours until the term after they turn 3, unless you are eligible for 2gether funding.

The unit is now registered to accept 2gether funding. Please click here for more details and to find out if  you are eligible for 15 hours free child care for 2 year olds.

Some 3 year olds who are using their 15 hours education funding are also eligible for Early Years Pupil Premium. Click here for more details. The school periodically sends out registration forms to check eligibility for Early Years Pupil Premium and School Age Pupil Premium, but if you think you might qualify please ask the school for a registration form, or download one from the links.

Please contact the school for more information and update to date times and charges and also a look around the unit.
