Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP)
On the 1st April 2015 the government introduced The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP).
There is £50 million available nationally to help improve outcomes for children aged 3 and 4 years and help them in preparation for school readiness. Eligible children are entitled to 60p per hour which equals approximately £342 per year.
WHAT IS THE EYPP FUNDING USED FOR?
The nursery is held in account for spending the EYPP grant but ultimately it is up to the nursery on how to make best use of the grant received.
In previous years EYPP funding has been used to purchase resources to support the children's learning and development and some of the funds have been used to hire additional staffing.
