Dear Herefordshire Council,

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, I’d like to make a request regarding your early years sufficiency reporting.

According to the DfE’s Early education and childcare Statutory guidance for local authorities, in accordance to the Childcare Act 2006 and the Childcare Act 2016, LAs are required by legislation to secure sufficient childcare, so far as is “reasonably practicable, for working parents, or parents who are studying or training for employment, for children aged 0-14 (or up to 18 for disabled children)”.

As part of this they should also encourage providers to take a sustainable business approach to planning and signpost providers to resources which can support them.

Local Authorities are requested to report annually to elected council members on how they are meeting their duty to secure sufficient childcare. LA’s are also obliged to make this data available and accessible to parents.

Therefore, I would like to request your most recent evidence of this reporting, and where parents are able to access this.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Catherine Williams

Pritchard, Bethan, Herefordshire Council
