Please find attached the new Northumberland Local Code of Practice – Early education for 2, 3 and 4 year olds which will come into force from September 2017.
You will be familiar with the layout from previous versions, however we strongly recommend that you re-read the full document to understand all of the changes/additions within, in light of new statutory and operation guidance.
Schools must have regard to this document when delivering early years entitlement and receiving funding. Please ensure you carefully read and fully understand the Northumberland Local Code of Practice (NLCoP) and have drawn it to the attention of all staff, committee and governance working in this area.
Please note – the parental agreement (Appendix B) now has updated privacy notices and associated links, please ensure you use this version with all parents receiving funded entitlement moving forward! (declarations you have already received do not need to be completed again on this version).
