Early Years Pupil Premium
The nursery may be entitled to claim additional funding – Early Years Pupil Premium (£300 per eligible child) to improve the quality of the early years education that we provide for your child.
The aim of this additional funding is to raise attainment and address inequalities for eligible children.
The nursery will use this additional funding to:
- Improve levels of attainment and progress
- Close the attainment gap
- Enhance literacy and numeracy skills
- Provide a wider range of learning experiences
Children become eligible when they turn three. In 2018-2019 we had 51 eligible children.
The funding (£12,506 approx) went towards supporting development, and removing barriers to learning in all areas of the EYFS, and also to ensuring that all children were able to participate fully in all areas of the curriculum. Our estimated funding for 2019-2020 is £10,350.
The pupil premium strategy is reviewed regularly by our governors and the next formal review will be available in September 2020.
