Pupil Premium Funding
The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) funds are designed to narrow the attainment gap between young children from low-income families and their peers by improving the facilities, equipment and learning experiences provided to benefit their growth and development. The funds are provided to support your child's individual needs.
All children aged three and four who meet the eligibility criteria will benefit from the funding which is paid directly to the Pre-school. All parents will be asked to supply details to allow a check to be run by the Local Authority, this will be through a form which will be given out as part of the admissions process each term.
