Welcome to St. Peter's CE Primary, Heswall! We are an Ofsted-rated GOOD school (2024) and a GOOD in all areas (2023) SIAMS-rated school!

Fees and Funding

At St Peter’s Early Years, we are able to offer all 3 and 4-year-old children their entitled Universal 15 hours per week free childcare (38 weeks per year). This takes effect the term after their 3rd birthday. We can provide all prospective parents with the relevant paperwork to apply for this.

In addition, we are pleased to be able to offer the extended 15 hours per week free childcare, subject to eligibility. This could mean your child is eligible for 30 hours funding. For more information and to find out if you are eligible,  please follow the links below.
If you are eligible for 30 hours funding, it is important that you apply for a code the term before you wish  to start claiming. The recommended dates are:

Funding start date                       Recommended time to apply for a code
1 September (Autumn term)          15 June
1 January (Spring term)                15 October
1 April (Summer term)                  15 January
We are registered to accept payments for fees via the Tax-free Childcare Service. For every £8 you pay, the Government will pay £2. This is paid via an online childcare account that you will need to set up. You can get Tax-Free Childcare at the same time as 30 hours free childcare if you are eligible for both. For more information on Tax-Free Childcare go to Tax-Free Childcare

Any sessions not covered by the Early Years funding will be charged at:
Session - £19.50
Lunch time - £5.50
All day - £44.50



Should your child be eligible for either the 15 or 30 hours funding and attends full days (morning and afternoon session) there will be an additional fee for lunchtime cover. (45 mins)  This is £5.50 per day. This will be charged via an invoice at the end of each term. 

Parents are very welcome to collect their child, at 11:45am and return them again at 12:30pm, should they wish their child to not attend for the 45 minute lunchtime. Should you require any further information or clarification please do not hesitate to contact school.
