Early Years Funding – Autumn Amendment / Spring Headcount

You will be aware that the Amendment Task for Autumn Term is now closed. The funding team are working through the data and conflict messages regarding any overclaims have been sent via the Provider Portal. These need to be resolved by Thursday 14th January before we move into the next funding period. Payments for the Amendment Task will be generated by the end of January.

Spring Term Forecast payments have been made this week. You should have received your remittance which may show an adjustment if you were overpaid in Autumn Term after the Headcount submission. Any overpayments for Autumn Term would be shown on your Payment Breakdown Report sent via the Portal.

The Spring Headcount Tasks will be issued next week and Headcount week is from Sunday 17th January – Saturday 23rd January. The deadline for submitting your funding claim is 23.59 on Sunday 31st January 2021.  Further guidance will be issued regarding funding for Spring Term as per our portal messages. 

Please note that the Provider Portal will not be available on Friday 8th January due to IT maintenance and the Early Years team will not have access to the system so will be unable to answer any specific queries.
