Early Years Pupil Premium
What is the Early Years Pupil Premium?
The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is additional funding for early years settings to improve the outcomes for disadvantaged 3- and 4-year-olds.
How can we use the additional funding?
We can use the extra funding in any way we choose to improve the quality of the early years education that we provide for your child. This could include for example, additional training for our staff on early language, investing in partnership working with our colleagues to further our expertise or a hot meal every day, 1:1 support for your child or to support our staff in working on specialised areas such as speech and language.
It is well documented that high quality early education can influence how well a child does at both primary and secondary school so we do want to make the most of this additional funding. You may be aware if you have older children that a pupil premium has been available for school age children and it has proved to have given a real boost to the children receiving the funding. We want to do the same for our early years children entitled to this funding.
What do you need to do to help us secure the funding?
When you fill in your EYEE claim form, please ensure you provide us with your National Insurance number so that we can claim this additional funding on your child’s behalf (subject to eligibility).
If you have any questions, please contact Mrs Holton (Early Years Coordinator).
