Head Start is open to:
If you have previously registered for support through Early Headship Provision (EHP) you will not be eligible to join Head Start as well.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries about your eligibility for Head Start.
Once you are appointed to your first headship you are entitled to apply for the second phase of the Head Start programme.
New headteachers that have already accessed EHP will not be entitled to register for Head Start as well. However, the Head Start online materials for new headteachers are also available to those accessing EHP via My College.
If an acting head has accessed part of their EHP grant previously and then frozen it whilst not in headship, they would be able to unfreeze it again while the EHP grant is still available. They would not qualify for Head Start support having already accessed the EHP grant.
