    We are very disappointed to announce that due to the current Covid outbreak at the College we have had to cancel all open events.  If you have any questions about our school, please email and we will be very happy to help.  


Payment Policy - Chulmleigh

Funded Children

Funded children that are claiming additional hours over their Early Years Entitlement (15 or 30hrs) will be charged at £4.50 per hour. You will receive an invoice at the beginning of each term broken down into monthly payments, which will reflect how many additional hours your child has booked over the whole term.  This will be calculated using the Early Years Entitlement funding calculator.

Non Funded Children

Non-funded children will be invoiced at the beginning of each month, and charged at £4.50 per hour. 

CAT Club

Children that use the CAT Club before and after school will be invoiced at the end of each month and charged £4.50 per hour.  Because of different starting times in the mornings, arriving earlier than your booked time will result in you being charged in 15 minute slots.  Arriving late for pick up will result in you being charged to the next 30mins, this is in conjunction with the Chulmleigh Out of School Club. There is a late collection fee of £15.00 charged for pick up after 6pm.  Please note that if your child does not attend a pre-booked session you will still be charged.

School Dinners

Money for school dinners is paid straight to Chulmleigh Academy Trust and is totally separate from CAT Preschools Limited.  If your child orders a school dinner, then money should be put in an envelope with your child’s name and date on. If paying by cheque, please make your cheques payable to CHULMLEIGH ACADEMY TRUST.
Non-payment of school dinners will result in your child not being able to access this facility until any outstanding payments have been cleared.


If fees remain unpaid, you will receive a reminder.
If, after receipt of a reminder, fees still remain unpaid then we will be unable to offer any more additional hours until payment is made.

We do not refund fees when children are absent through sickness, or other.
Long term illnesses or holidays is of course a different matter, and is negotiable.  

Please make cheques payable to CAT Preschools Ltd, or if paying by bank transfer:
