Bishop of Durham asks about funded early years childcare for families with no recourse to public funds

The Bishop of Durham received the following written answer on 9th January 2023:

The Lord Bishop of Durham: To ask His Majesty’s Government how many children subject to no recourse to public funds (NRPF) conditions in receipt of 15 hours a week of free early education are British citizens.

Baroness Barran (Con): Following a consultation in May 2022, the department extended eligibility for the 15-hour early education entitlement for disadvantaged two-year-olds to children in no recourse to public fund (NRPF) households in September 2022.

The department does not hold data on the number of children that are British children with NRPF that are currently in receipt of the two-year old early education entitlement.
