30hrs free childcare qualifying criteria - term time only

Hi, hoping someone can help here regarding 30hrs free childcare.

I understand you need to earn £120 per week in order to qualify but what if you only work term time. Is £120 a week over a 44 week working period sufficient to qualify?

I’m concerned the £120 per week mminimum may in reality mean you need to earn £6240 over the year to qualify?! (£120 x 52 = £6240).

Any help much appreciated, thanks
