Since April 2005 employers have been able to provide Child Care Vouchers (CCVs) up to a value of £55 per week or £243 per month, free from tax and national insurance contributions as part of a salary sacrifice scheme for employees.
The current rates are shown on the HMRC website at www.hmrc.gov.uk/childcare (look at Guidance for Employees).
Chafyn Grove School is happy to accept CCVs from parents but, as ever, there are rules that must be followed. The HMRC regulations are complex and vary between the countries of the United Kingdom. However, in England, parents can use CCVs in payment or part payment of care provided by the governing body of a school for any pupil up to and including the summer term of the academic year in which the child celebrates his 15th birthday (16th birthday if disabled), if it takes place: outside normal school hours (this means the normal hours of compulsory education adopted by the school as appropriate for the age of the child); and on school premises.
Chafyn Grove will therefore accept CCVs for the following:
The Boarding Supplement at Chafyn Grove;
Pre-Prep clubs at Chafyn Grove, including:
- Child Minding (Late List)
- Pre-Prep Ballet/Dance Club
- Pre-Prep Gym Club
- Pre-Prep Squash Club
- ‘Little Stars’ Holiday Club
We are not allowed to accept CCVs for extra-curricular activity that takes place off-site or during the school day. Neither can CCVs be used to pay for holiday activities run as private enterprises by individual members of staff. Parents will understand that for reasons of fairness and consistency, we will not accept CCVs for individual music, squash or tennis tuition, even if some lessons might take place after the school day.
Ordinary tuition fees for any child aged three (or rising three, which means a child who will be three before the end of term) until 31 March, 31 August or 31 December next after the child celebrates his 5th birthday. This means that, for all children at Chafyn Grove who are being taught within their correct National Curriculum Year, you can use CCVs to pay for Tuition Fees from Nursery to Reception. This currently mirrors the (separate) eligibility rules for provision of the Nursery Education Grant.
