Early Years Pupil Premium

The Early Years Pupil Premium is additional funding for Early Years settings to improve the education provided for disadvantaged 3-year-olds and 4-year-olds.

It is the responsibility of each setting to identify children and families that are eligible for the funding and support them to apply for it.

The money is spent according to each year’s cohort needs as identified in data analysis twice a year eg. targeted materials and intervention for maths or speaking and listening activities. We would also look at the individual child’s needs, e.g. extra free session at nursery while a parent attends a specific course to help with their child’s development.
