From April 2015, children who are currently claiming the 3 and 4 year old free early education entitlement in any Primary School Nursery class could be eligible for the Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP).
The Early Years Pupil Premium is additional funding which is used to improve a child’s learning and development. This means an extra £302 a year for each child taking up the full 570 hours funded entitlement to early education. This additional money could make a significant difference to our School.
Your child may be eligible if you are in receipt of one or more of these benefits:

We can use the extra funding in any way we choose to improve the quality of the early years education that we provide for your child. This could include for example additional training for our staff on early language, investing in partnership working with our colleagues in the area to further our expertise or supporting our staff in working on specialised areas such as speech and language.
Therefore we ask that ALL PARENTS/GUARDIANS who think they may be eligible based on the criteria above, fill in the EYPP section of the Parental Declaration, FEF Funding & Pupil Premium Claim form. This will allow us to claim the additional Early Years Pupil Premium.
The factsheet below has additional information, and the declaration form is also available below for download or further copies are available at the School Office. If you have any questions, please contact the School Office.
