Wraparound Revenue

Closes 18 Nov 2024

Opened 13 Jun 2024


In Spring 2023, the government announced a national wraparound programme. The aim is to support all working families who require it, to access wraparound childcare from 8am to 6pm, in their local area. Essex County Council are committed to working with providers to ensure there is sufficient provision for all parents who require it from September 2024.

The government’s ambition is, that by 2026, all parents and carers of primary aged children, will be able to access Ofsted registered term time childcare in their local area. This will cover hours that wrap around the school day from 8am-6pm. This needs to be available to all children whose parents require it, including children with SEND. The aim is to make it easier for parents to access employment. 

Essex County Council have been allocated £6,939,115 between 31st October 2023 and 31st March 2026 for the creation of new, fully inclusive provision within the County. The funding will be for revenue expenditure only.
