Early Years Pupil Premium
What is Early Years Pupil Premium?
It is an inclusive supplement supplied from the government to support those who are at risk of disadvantage. Each child will receive £302.10 (in Primary Schools this increases to £1,320 per pupil). Spread across 38 weeks@15 hours (570 hours), this equates to 53p per hour per child extra. It is intended to help us try to close the attainment gap between the most disadvantaged pupils and their peers.
Who are our eligible children?
In 2019, our intake show 42 children eligible for EYPP in Summer Term.
What funding did we received in 2017-18?
Last academic year, received funding for a total of 57 eligible children – equating to £17,219.70, paid across the year - in September and January.
What is our philosophy relating to ‘closing the gap’?
Our core values promote the achievement of all pupils. Therefore we believe that we should be seeking ways to improve outcomes for all children through individualised approaches that are timely and have impact (long term as well as short term). Children who are eligible for EYPP should not be stereotyped as having less potential to succeed.
Poverty and wellbeing: World Health Organisation definition of health:
“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
• Hunger, fuel poverty, access to services
• Health issues facing our families / support and information about services and benefits / integrate services (eg Nursery nurse)

The impact of that expenditure on eligible and other pupils
36 of the 57 children eligible left in July 2018. Our data for July 2018 shows that children in receipt of EYPP made rapid and sustained progress. They made similar levels of progress as non-EYPP children. Most EYPP children left at expected levels of development (30-50 months secure) and some exceeding (40-60 months emerging and within).
