Summary of responses received and the government’s response outlining the next steps.
We have also published the guidance ‘Wraparound and holiday childcare: responding to requests’.
This consultation ran from to
We're seeking views on draft guidance about how schools should respond to requests regarding wraparound and holiday childcare.
This draft guidance concerns how local-authority-maintained schools, academies and free schools should respond to:
- parents who ask their child’s school to establish wraparound and/or holiday childcare
- childcare providers who ask to use school facilities for wraparound and/or holiday childcare at times when the school isn’t using them
‘Wraparound childcare’ is childcare that schools provide outside of normal school hours, such as breakfast clubs or after school.
This guidance will help you understand how to comply with the law or explain what our policies mean in practice. You do not have to follow it.
