OFSTED Voluntary Registered
One of the great benefits of using Coast Activity Programme is that Coast is OFSTED-registered. This gives you added assurance and peace of mind in our provision.
We are thrilled to announce that we are now on the Ofsted voluntary register! We have waited quite some time for this to come through so we are delighted to finally be able to announce this with you all.
OFSTED is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They inspect and regulate services that care for children and young people, and services providing education and skills for learners of all ages.
What this means:
Now that our services are regulated by Ofsted, you can be offered that extra assurance in the standards that we uphold.
This also means that we can accept payment for camps through the tax-free childcare scheme at: Helston Community College, St Ives Secondary School, St Ives leisure centre and Hayle Academy.
For more information on the tax-free scheme and to check your eligibility please use the following link: https://www.gov.uk/get-tax-free-childcare
For working families, including the self-employed, in the UK, with children under 12 (or under 17 if disabled).
For every £8 you pay in, the government will add an extra £2, up to £2,000 per child per year.
How do I access Tax-Free Childcare?
Parents can check their eligibility for 30 hours through the childcare calculator (external link) link and apply for 30 hours and Tax-Free Childcare through the childcare service (external link)
If eligible, you will receive an 11-digit eligibility code. Before you can book a place, you must email us your code, national insurance number and child’s date of birth so that we can check that the code is valid.
Once this has been checked, please email or ring to book. We will need to know:
- Full name of child/ren
- Days and times wishing to book
- Which site you would like to book
Please do not book directly through the Playwaze site
Before each holiday you will need to confirm that the details entered on the application are up to date.
