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.

Funding received in 2016/17

Autumn -16       1,812.60               18 Children

Spring-17           2,517.50              25 Children

How we used the funding in the 2016/17 school year to support the development of our children:

Assessment and positive behaviour management were highlighted as  areas for development.

Funding was used to employ the services of two early years experts. Di Chilvers, who delivered training and on-going support on assessment and planning children's next steps. Kay Mathieson , who delivered training on positive behaviour management. 

Enhancements and redecoration was carried in the sensory room and a number of resources purchased.  


All children have made good or better progress.
