Employer Childcare Vouchers
Steephill School accepts voucher payments for school fees up to and including the term the child turns 5 years old. After this age Childcare Vouchers can be used for payment for Before and After school care, including Extra-Curricular Clubs after school.
Childcare voucher schemes are available through many companies in the form of salary sacrifice. If your company participates in such a scheme, salary deduction of up to £243.00 each month can be deducted, which will not thereby be subject to Income Tax or National Insurance.
The company will then pass on the full £243.00 to its associated voucher company, which will either already have details of how to pay the vouchers directly to the School or make arrangements to set up payment.
