Early Years Pupil Premium

The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is additional Government funding to help raise attainment for disadvantaged 3 and 4 year olds, if they meet specific eligibility criteria, and close the gap between the most and least advantaged children. All parents/careers are provided with information regarding eligibility for EYPP during the Nursery induction process.

 

At St Thomas Centre Nursery School, we support all children to reach their full potential. For those children who are entitled to Early Years Pupil Premium, we carefully consider the most appropriate way to spend the allocated funding to overcome barriers and meet the needs, strengths and interest of individual children. Listening to and taking account of the feelings and wishes of all our children, including our Looked After children, helps us to identify how we will bets support each child. Our detailed knowledge of individuals, alongside our assessment data and research findings informs our approach and identifies how we will measure the effect of this funding.

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.
