Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP)
The purpose of Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) funding is to help ‘close the gap’ between the lowest achieving children and those who are making age appropriate progress or above. The Government allocates extra money per pupil directly to the school when families meet certain criteria relating to household income. Research has shown that these children are more likely to under achieve, therefore the EYPP is specifically used to make sure they reach their full potential in the Early Years.
We have to explain the reasoning behind the way this funding is spent and demonstrate the positive impact it has on this group of children’s progress because we are accountable to the DFE/Ofsted, Governors and the whole school community.
Etherley Lane Nursery School ensures that provision is made to secure inclusive teaching and learning opportunities which meet the needs of all children. We actively strive to remove any potential barriers to learning and our ethos is one of highly inclusive practice.
