Termination of Agreement to deliver Early Education Entitlement Places

Where a Coventry Childcare Provider no longer wishes to deliver Early Education Entitlement places, the Provider must complete the online ‘Withdrawal to deliver Early Education Funded places’ form which serves as official notification to Coventry City Council.

This form is for use by Coventry Childcare Providers to inform us of their intention to be removed from Coventry’s Early Education Entitlement Funding register.

As a result of removing a Childcare Provider from the funding register, Coventry City Council will

  • Close the Coventry Schools and Early Years Portal Account
  • Remove the Provider’s email address from the Local Authorities distribution list for funded providers. You will therefore no longer receive emails in connection with funding related issues
  • Close the Providers account as a supplier so that they are no longer able to receive funding payments form the Coventry City Council

Repayment sums

As a result of your withdrawal to deliver Early Education Funded Places, the Provider Funding Agreement of which you signed governing the contractual arrangement between you and the Council will be terminated. In respect of termination the Provider Funding Agreement states:

In the event of termination of this Agreement pursuant to clause 18, the Provider is required to repay to the Council on a pro rata basis any sum of money received for the current Funding Period of which the Provider will no longer be providing Funded Entitlement Places.”

You will therefore be required to repay to the Council any money paid to you for Early Education Entitlement Places that you no longer deliver. The Council will inform you of the amount repayable in writing.

If you experience any problems and are unable to complete the online form, please call 024 7697 5451 where your call will be logged and passed on to the relevant officer.
