Pupil Premium


From April 2015 all nursery provision will be able to claim extra funding through the Early

Years Pupil Premium to support children’s learning and development.

The Early Years Pupil Premium provides up to an extra £310 a year for the nursery for each eligible child taking up their 15 hours of funded early education.

We will use this funding on a range of strategies to ensure we have a positive impact on children’s progress and in particular those children who are in danger of falling behind. For example targeted group work and one to one support.

Recently we have used this funding for Forest Schools & movement/dance workshops. We have also purchased a copy of our core story for each Pupil Premium child.


3 and 4 year olds in state funded early education will attract EYPP funding if they meet at least 1 of the following criteria:

  • Their family gets 1 of the following:

O   Income Support

O   Income based Jobseeker’s Allowance

O   Income related Employment and Support Allowance

O   The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit

O   Child Tax Credit

(provided they’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of nomore than £16,190)

O   Working Tax Credit run on, which is paid for 4 weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit

O   Universal Credit

  • They have been in local authority care for 1 day or more in England or Wales
