Early Years Pupil Premium


The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is extra funding for 3 and 4 year old children whose parents are in receipt of certain benefits or are in the care of the local authority. We receive an extra 53 pence per hour (£302 per year) for every child who is eligible and will use this money to obtain training, additional staffing or resources to enhance their learning and development.

How we used the funding in the 2015/16 school year to support the development of our children:

The use of appropriate open ended questioning in order to develop children’s thinking and communication skills was highlighted as an area for development.

Funding was used to employ the services of an early years expert, Di Chilvers, who delivered three training days and worked in the classrooms alongside staff to support them in this.

Ensuring children’s next steps were appropriately planned for and parents were consulted and involved was another aspect of the training Di Chilvers provided and has led to the introduction of the use of Learning Stories to assess children’s learning, interest and plan ways forward.


All children have made at least a good level of progress.
