Here at Bonnygate Primary School we are pleased to offer a range of sessions for you to choose from. We do our very best to accommodate your requests but they are subject to availability.
If your child is entitled to the Early Education Grant for 3 year olds for 30 hours (entitlement starts the term after they are 3) for example, if your child’s birthday is during the Autumn Term, they will not be eligible until the Spring Term. You will not be charged for the additional 15 hours of sessions if your child is eligible. However, this does not include the lunchtime sessions, these are chargeable separately. If you do wish for your child to start before they are eligible for free funding, you will need to pay for the additional sessions.
- No cost to you for 15 hours of flexible entitled funding – The lunchtime supervision fee is £2.00 and your child would need to bring a packed lunch
- Additional 3 hour session fee for early starters £13.50 per session prior to their start date
Please note that if your child is entitled to 30 hours free childcare you must visit Childcare Choices | Vouchers, Tax Credits and More | Help with Costs | GOV.UK to apply once you are offered a space a Bonnygate. Please note, we cannot secure your 30 hour space without your Childcare code.

Thurrock Council normally processes applications on the basis of the child’s home address at the time of application and offer. The home address is the address where the child is a permanent resident, or where the child is ordinarily resident. This is usually the address of the parent or carer with parental responsibility. The adult with whom the child is ordinarily resident would receive the child benefit for the child.
You can find your street on the Thurrock Council’s List of School Catchment Areas.
Any application received after the closing date will be treated as a late application. This means there will be far less chance of your child being offered a place at the school you want. Thurrock Council process late applications only after they have processed all the on-time applications. If you have already applied online you will not be able to make another application. Contact Thurrock Council if you feel you need to make another application or to send evidence that your application was late due to exceptional circumstances.
For more information regarding when you should apply please read Thurrock Council’s Admissions Timetable.
