Support and Additional Provision
Universal hours for three and four-year-olds
All three and four-year-old children are entitled to 15 hours of free high-quality early education. This runs from the term a child turns three, until they reach compulsory school age. The current universal free entitlement is 15 hours per week for 38 weeks of the year (570 hours per year).
Extended hours for three and four-year-olds
Eligible working families will be able to claim an additional 15 hours free per week. This takes their free entitlement to 30 hours per week for 38 weeks of the year (1140 hours per year).

Top Up Hours
If you are not eligible for 30 Hours provision but would like you child to attend for more hours than the Universal Offer of 15 free hours, please contact us to discuss your needs. If we have additional places available in our morning or afternoon sessions, we may be able to offer you additional time at a cost of £15 per session. If available, additional time must be booked termly.
Children attending morning or afternoon only sessions would not normally have a school lunch at Mowbray. However, children attending all day under 30 hours provision or via Top Up Hours can purchase a school lunch. Lunches currently are available for £2 per day.
Breakfast Club
We operate a Breakfast Club from 8:00am every day. The cost of this session is £2 and includes your child's Breakfast and supervision until their session or School Day begins. These sessions must be booked and paid for in advance as they are very popular and places are limited. Bookings and payments can be made once your child is registered at school as you will be given access to our Weduc app from which all payments are made to school (e.g. lunches, Educational Visits, Breakfast Club etc).
After School Provision
We offer childcare after school until 6pm every day. The costs for this provision vary depending upon the time you wish to collect your child and whether or not you would like your child to have a packed meal or not.
After School Provision until 4.15pm £2
After School Provision until 5:00pm £5
After School Provision until 5:00pm with Packed Meal £6.50
After School Provision until 6:00pm £8
After School Provision until 6:00pm with Packed Meal
Free School Meals and Pupil Premium
In some families cases, you may be eligible for Free School Meals. Although all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 receive a free school meal as part of the Universal Offer, families who meet the criteria below are eligible for additional funding to support their children in school. This additional support comes in many different forms such as free school uniform, free books, reductions on educational visits, additional support in and out of class to name a few. It really is worth completing the online form if you are eligible as the benefits to your child are far more than just a Free School Meal.

Children will be eligible for Free School Meals and the additional Pupil Premium Grant if their parents are in receipt of, one or more of the following benefits:
  • Universal Credit
    • Provided you have an annual net income of no more than £7,400
    • This is assessed by earnings from up to three of your most recent assessment periods

Counselling and Nurture Support
Mowbray Primary School has an excellent pastoral system which was highly praised in our Inspection in January 2020. We employ Mrs Jane Baines as the Pastoral Manager and she leads on all aspects of pastoral support from attendance through to supporting emotional Health and Well-being. 
Mrs Baines has developed our nurture provision across the whole school. This uses targeted support to help the children overcome any areas which are barriers to their learning. These barriers may be friendship issues, social and emotional difficulties, development of listening and concentration skills as an example of just a few.
Nurture provision is available to all children in school throughout the week; however, Mrs Baines specifically works within our Early Years Unit every Friday.
In addition to our nurture provision, Mrs Baines is also a fully qualified Counsellor and member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapy (BACP). As such, we are in the unique position to offer bespoke in house counselling to children and their families which can support people through a huge range of issues - even if they are not related to education; e.g. bereavement, family breakup, severe illness diagnosis. We have a bespoke, private counselling room which Mrs Baines uses to offer this service.
If you would like to contact Mrs Baines directly, please email or telephone her work phone directly on 07595613842
