Additional funding, known as ‘Early Years Pupil Premium’ is available to those parents who are in receipt of certain benefits or were the child has been adopted from care or is subject to a special guardianship or child arrangement order. This means we can claim an extra £302 per child per year to enhance the support and education that they receive.

The Pupil Premium is spent to benefit these children at the discretion of the Head Teacher. Examples of how the funding could be spent include:

  • providing targeted intervention
  • obtaining specialist training for staff to support children with additional needs
  • enrichment of the curriculum e.g. subsidised school visits, workshops and special events

It is well documented that high quality early education can influence how well a child does at both primary and secondary school so we want to make the most of this additional funding. For further information about EYPP, how much we get and what we’ve spent it on, please see below:
