I'm just curious if anyone else has found this? My son does his 15 hours over 2 days. I believe he is eligible for 38 weeks of 15 hours. His days are Monday and Friday. However I think he's losing out on several days where other children are only losing 3 hours (those who do 5 days a week). Has anyone else thought this? What did you do?
I only realised when I got a letter stating he can go to his christmas party (today) if he gives up hours elsewhere this week. But he's already losing hours next week as school close Thursday. So he loses the full day, where as those doing 3 hour sessions just loose 3 hours. He lost out at the start of term too as the first Friday and Monday of term were inset days meaning he didn't start until Sept 9th.
He's missing out on his Christmas party today because I can't swap his session - he goes while I'm at work.
Can you swap days, or ask if they have any additional sessions you can use? If they are only open term time, they will find it hard to be flexible. I'm open all year, so people can always make up their free hours at other times.
They shouldn't be claiming all the hours if they can't offer them.
