Early Years Pupil Premium

What is Early Years Pupil Premium?
Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is additional funding for early years pre-school settings to improve the education they provide for disadvantaged 3- and 4 year-olds including, but not restricted to, those adopted from care.

 Each eligible 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?

Eligibility criteria are that families need to meet one of the following criteria:

  • Income Support
  • income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided they’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on, which is paid for 4 weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit
  • they have been in local-authority care for 1 day or more in England or Wales
  • they have been adopted from care in England or Wales
  • they have left care under a special guardianship order or residence order in England or Wales

Eligibility will need to be checked annually to ensure circumstances haven’t changed.

Number of children eligible this term Spring 22 -  42 children
Amount of EYPP received per pupil £302.10
Expected EYPP income  £12,688.20

How will we use EYPP to overcome barriers in 2021-2022?

See table below for our 2021-2022 EYPP Strategy

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)

Early Years Pupil Premium for 2020-21 (last academic year)

What funding did we receive in 2020-21?
See table below 

How the early years pupil premium allocation was spent:

Number of children eligible in 2020-21 76 (72% of the cohort)
Amount of EYPP received per pupil £302.10
Total EYPP income received £22,959.60

The impact of that expenditure on eligible and other pupils

This year,  Covid-19 has impacted upon the nature of spending of EYPP funding. Typically, we would prioritise first-hand experiences, visitors and visits as a spend but the restrictions around reducing risk of transmission have meant we could not provide as much of this type of activity as we would like.   

Our data for July 2021 shows that children in receipt of EYPP made rapid and sustained progress up to exit, despite having some periods of disrupted nursery education.  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). See below for more detail:

Early Years Pupil Premium averages (last 3 years)

EYPP figures fluctuate and increase across a school year (September - July). 

We have lower numbers of children in Autumn Term and therefore lower EYPP. Numbers increase with a January intake and then increase again if we have an April intake. Please note these figures are FINANCIAL YEAR
