  • The grant allocation is used to contribute to the cost of additional TA2 and TA3 support and the provision of Forest Schools, we find that this additional support and provision encourages our children to develop in confidence and their communication skills develop rapidly as a consequence of these interventions.
  • Forest school and cooking sessions enable children to learn to use tools safely, build their skills of independence and resilience through trying new, challenging experiences.

Early Years Pupil Premium Funding 2016 / 17

From April 2015 we have been able to claim extra Government Funding for some of our 3 and 4 year olds in the Nursery School to support their development, learning and care. This funding is called the Early Years Pupil premium.

The Early Years Pupil Premium provides us with an extra 53 pence per hour for three and four year old children whose parents are in receipt of certain benefits or who have been in care or adopted from care. This means an extra £302 a year for each child taking up the full 15 hours per week funded entitlement to early education.

It is well known that high quality early education can influence how well a child does at both primary and secondary school so we do want to make the most of this additional funding. You may be aware if you have older children that a pupil premium has been available for school age children and it has proved to have given a real boost to children receiving the funding. We want to do the same for our children entitled to this funding.

We currently use the extra funding to support children's progress and achievements in the Early Years Foundation Stage 3 'prime areas' - Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development. 

This years Early Years Pupil Premium in 2017/18 is £2,319.00
