Extended Hours

If you have applied for the extra hours up to 30, you should have received an 11-digit code which you would have passed onto Pre-School. This code can only be used from September if we receive it before the 31st of August and add it to the portal operated by Devon County Council. We must make you aware that you will be invoiced for any extra hours not covered by the funding. Please see below our 38-week academic year showing our term dates.
