The Early Years Pupil Premium [EYPP] is additional funding that is allocated to nurseries to support children from low-income families. This includes families of looked- after children, families whose children are eligible for free school meals and children from service families.
The allocation for 2016-17 is £302 per child.
As last year, it will be used to contribute to the salary of Susan Carter who works five days a week across the 3-4 year old setting. Susan supports the children in receipt of the EY Pupil Premium and her work includes:
The money will also be used to contribute to trips and outings that enhance the curriculum we offer our children. There are frequent visits to key shops and services in the locality and with the sights and sounds of central London so close by, many opportunities to engage with the wider environment, develop life skills, reinforce British values and foster a strong sense of citizenship. We have also purchased popular culture resources to support children’s current specific interests.
During the year 2015-16, the Early Years Pupil Premium contributed to the salary of Susan Carter. Susan implemented a number of projects, targeting children in receipt of the EYPP. These included;
