The aim of Early Years Pupil Premium is to close the gap between children from disadvantaged backgrounds and their peers by providing an extra 53p per hour on top of the free entitlement for three and four year olds, whose parents are in receipt of certain benefits or who have been in care or adopted from care. This is £302 per child per year for each child taking up the full 570 hours funded entitlement to early education.
Our EYPP funding is to support children with language development, social skills and personal development.
We use our pupil premium to provide every child with a dinner once a week, this supports our children’s personal and social education and develops communication and language skills. Children have the experience of sitting with a group of friends in a family situation with an adult modelling. Children are encouraged to continue to develop relationships, engage in conversation, build vocabulary and develop social skills. Extra staff are employed to release key workers to run targeted programmes to support children by working in small groups through play based intervention. They explore the children’s interests and build relationships between peers and adults.
We are an accredited Forest School and we use some of this funding to further support some of our forest school work. Forest School develops the children’s knowledge and understanding of the world, physical skills, communication and language and their emotional well-being.
