29/06/2020 - L-04-20INTENTION: Reopening libraries public consultation ref: 1692    For Determination

To agree consultation with the public on potential changes to the Library service on re-opening during the COVID 19 pandemic

Decision Maker: Leader of the Council and Cabinet Member for Economic Development, Military-Civilian Integration

Decision published: 29/06/2020

Effective from: 07/07/2020

Decision:


11/06/2020 - Approval for a second variation to payment for Early Years Providers as a result of Covid-19 - following the updated DfE guidance received 21 April 2020 changes effective 1 June 2020 - Summer Term 2020 ref: 1690    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Helen Jones (Director - Joint Commissioning)

Decision published: 18/06/2020

Effective from: 11/06/2020

Decision:

To approve the proposal to continue to make reduced payments of early years entitlement funding for 2, 3- & 4-year olds to settings and childminders closed during the coronavirus pandemic. This will be a phased approach moving from 80% in May, to 100% funding for September as detailed in the paper. This will create a pool of funds to pay settings who accept higher numbers of children than they originally estimated and make standard payments to open settings to contribute towards the costs of PPE and additional cleaning.

This scheme will pay Childminders and Group Settings a one-off payment to contribute towards these additional costs, and will be £150 for Childminders, and £1000 for Group Settings. The alternative option consulted on was to pay open settings £10 per child per week. We have consulted with all childcare providers on which is the preferred option before making a decision, and results are in the paper below. This will replace the £100 per child per week additional payment to settings, agreed in April, as this will not be sustainable as more settings are requested to open.

Up until 31 May 2020, settings have been open to children of key workers, to children with a social worker or those with an education health & care plan (EHCP). With effect from 1 June 2020, it is the government’s expectation that all settings will be open to all children where possible.
