Early years bulletin

21 June 2023


The actual headcount task for the Autumn funding period will be available on the provider portal from Monday 26 June 2023. In order to avoid late submissions please make sure that your current log in details are working, contact the Synergy support team at synergysupport@portsmouthcc.gov.uk if you have password issues that need resolving. Please be aware that the deadline date for submission of your headcount is Monday, 3 July 2023 (NOT 10 July).

All providers will need to complete the task to claim early education funding for their two, three and four year olds who are registered to attend in the Autumn term. Payment will be made to providers in the first week of September based on the information you submit to us.

Please remember:

  • Parents must have completed and signed the parent declaration forms before you add children to the headcount. You may want to consider issuing this form to parents as part of your registration process.

You can still claim funding for children who start after the submission date by adding them to the adjustment period 1 headcount task which will be issued in September 2023.

Important information

Please note that the Synergy system does not support changes from a term time offer to a stretched offer within a funding period. If you have submitted a claim for a term time place on your actual task and a parent wants to change to a stretched offer mid-term, you will need to advise them that they will have to wait until the following term in order to make those changes. Please contact us if you have any questions about this: eyfunding@portsmouthcc.gov.uk.
