The government has published the response to the childcare provider ‘rights to request’ consultation. See here for the full paper.
On the 7 December 2015 the Department for Education published draft guidance for consultation on how local authority maintained schools, academies and free schools should respond to:
a. parents’ requests that the school that their child attends considers establishing wraparound and / or holiday childcare; and
b. childcare providers’ requests to use school facilities for wraparound and / or holiday provision at times when the school is not using them.
Schools will be able to reject requests from parents and childcare providers that they allow their premises to be used for childcare provision.
