Early Years Pupil Premium

The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) gives providers of early education and childcare extra funding to support certain 3- and 4-year-olds. Pupil Premium is additional money for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. 

EYPP funding will follow the child.

EYPP is paid by the local authority where the child receives the early education and not where they live.

St Thomas Centre Nursery School will receive an estimated £11.194 in the 2016 - 2017 Financial year. This is based on pupil numbers which may change

At St Thomas Centre Nursery we use EYPP to support Communication and Language development and Literacy Development. This will include

  • Visit to the Theatre 
  • Drama and Language groups visiting the nursery - Language Alive
  • Library Take home books to support home learning 
  • Cost towards language groups to develop Speaking and Listening skills differentiated to children's ability.
