Early Years Pupil Premium

The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is extra funding that aims to improve outcomes for disadvantaged 3 and 4 year olds who are receiving the free entitlement to free education.  Children who meet the criteria will be eligible for an extra 53p per hour (approx £300 per year)

We will use this money to obtain additional staff and resources that help improve the quality of education.


Final Report of Early Years Pupil Premium  (2016 - 2017) 

Interim report of Early years Pupil Premium (2017 - 2018)

Registering for free school meals could raise an extra £300 per 3 or 4 year old child in a nursery school and an extra £1,300 per child in a primary school, to fund valuable support such as additional teaching staff or after school activities. We encourage you to apply even if your child does not stay for lunch.

The additional money is called the Pupil Premium and is available from central government for every child whose mum, dad or carer is receiving welfare benefits. It is therefore important to sign up for free school meals so that your child’s school receives as much funding as possible.

Please see the office staff who will give you a Free School Meals form which serves as the EYPP form,  to complete.The information you provide in this form will be used by the Local Authority to confirm receipt of one of the listed welfare benefits.  Once this is confirmed, this helps to decide how much money your child’s school will receive each year.

You only need to complete this form once and it will last for the whole of your child’s time at their current school.

Thank you for completing this form and helping to make sure your child’s school is as well funded as possible.
