On 19 December 2017, we published ’30 hours free childcare: autumn term 2017’. This showed that, in the first term of delivery, an estimated 1,143 children were in a 30 hours place in Coventry – this was 97% of those issued with a 30 hours eligibility code.
Furthermore, as of 8 January, 1,786 30 hours eligibility codes had been issued in Coventry for the spring term and 1,445 of these codes had been validated via the department's eligibility checking system.
This data was published in the management information release: ‘30 hours free childcare eligibility codes issued and validated: January 2018’: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/30-hours-free-childcare-eligibility-codes-issued-and-validated.
We will continue to publish regular management information on the rollout of 30 hours free childcare at a national and local level.
