Provision of additional financial support to the three maintained nursery schools

To consider feedback provided by the three maintained nursery schools on the financial impact of the Covid pandemic on their operations during the 2020/21 financial year and to approve the proposed additional financial support to be provided to assist them in mitigating Covid related financial losses.
Whilst the maintained nursery schools have been able to access the CJRS, they have been unable to access other Government Covid financial support mechanisms which have been available to the wider schools and early years sectors.
