The NCS Policy Guidelines have been updated and the revised guidelines are now available on this Portal on the 

NCS Documents page. As you are aware, there have been a number of changes to the NCS since the scheme launched in 2019. The revised Policy Guidelines have been updated to take account of the many changes since launch, including the most recent changes which were the removal of ‘wraparound hours’ in April 2022 and the extension of Universal for children up to age 15 years which takes effect from 29 August 2022. As the programme evolves and further changes are announced, we will continue to update the guidelines accordingly. Yours sincerely,
The Early Years Team
