1140 hours

Scottish Government need to announce either a council collective total postponement of the roll out of 1140 hours or a 💯 roll out. This camber of one council doing X & another doing Y & some doing a bit of both falls short of any form of fairness or statements in Realising the Ambition for our children & families. In addition to this, we press on the government in the name of fiscal transparency, parental empowerment & given that the level of hourly funding falls well short of the cost of the delivery - that PVI settings act as a conduit of the eligible funding to be given directly to parents & extrapolate them from fees. Our experiences of having the eligible funding woven into our fees has proved troublesome to say the least with irksome & unreasonable Machiavellian type pressures on us by some rogue councils. This money is for the child & it should follow the child & we as settings should be free to charge a fair fee for what it costs us to run our settings & give this money in its entirety back to families.

Why the contribution is important

As statement indicates. The historic & continued underfunding of EY sector. Funds do not equal cost of delivery. The unreasonable Machiavellian powers some Councils adopts. Parental empowerment. Transparency in public funds. Lack of a uniformed interpretation & execution of SG policy that is rolled out in 32 different ways across Scotland. Misuse & unfair allocation of eligible funds I’m regions.
