Early Years Pupil Premium Funding

The early years pupil premium (EYPP) is additional funding for early years settings to improve the education they provide for 3 and 4 year olds whose families meet the eligibility criteria.

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of each pupil
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups; this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.
  • We recognise that pupils eligible for Pupil Premium have a wide range of needs, including stretch and challenge for the most able, and we use the funding to improve outcomes for the full range of eligible pupils.
  • We track the progress of pupil premium children rigorously to ensure there is a positive impact on learning outcomes.

EYPP

For each eligible child the school receives an extra 53p per hour and uses it to provide additional support to meet these individual children’s needs.

In the academic year 2018-2019 we had no children who were eligible for pupil premium funding.
