Early Years Pupil Premium
The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is additional funding for early years settings to improve the education they provide for disadvantaged 3 and 4 year olds.
There has been concern that children from disadvantaged backgrounds perform significantly less well than children from more affluent backgrounds. Children who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) are often at risk of falling behind in their learning. Early Years Pupil premium was introduced to give schools extra funding to ‘close the gap’ between the attainment of disadvantaged pupils compared to other children within schools as well as nationally.
The funding received for 2018-2019 was used towards developing confidence in rhyme, songs and stories through music.
