Early Years Pupil Premium

If your 3-4 year old child attends our Nursery School, you may be able to help us with gaining extra funding so we can do even more to support your child.  This may be through specialist training for their staff or new experiences for the children or resources to challenge them to learn and develop.

The funding is called Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) and is paid directly to childcare providers.

If you include your National Insurance Number on the registration and funding forms, this will be used to allocate this funding.

Who is eligible?

Your child may be eligible if you receive any of the following benefits –

Income Support

Income-based Jobseekers Allowance

Income-related Employment and Support Allowance

Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit

Child Tax Credit (provided family is not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190

Working Tax Credit run-on (the payment someone may receive for a further four weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit).

Funding may also be available if your child falls into one of the following groups: –

Has been looked after by the local authority for at least one day

Adopted from care

Has left care through a special guardianship arrangement

Has left care and is subject to a child arrangement order

Every child who is eligible for the EYPP could raise up to £302.10 a year for our Nursery School.  This funding from the government goes directly to Lee Royd Nursery School

We use baseline data of those children who qualify for Early Years Pupil Premium or EYPP, to plan the additional support given.  Depending on need, support is given through a wide variety of ways from Early Talk Boost, a speech and language intervention, additional small group time delivered by a Teaching Assistant, paying for external visitors to come to Nursery to give the children experiences and to buy new Interventions that will benefit the children.

Our tracking data evidences that the gap between children who qualify for the EYPP and others is closing effectively.  We expect to close the gap further.
