Early Years Pupil Premium

 

The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is extra funding for 3 and 4 year old children whose parents are in receipt of certain benefits or are in the care of the local authority. We receive an extra 53 pence per hour (£302 per year) for every child who is eligible and will use this money to obtain training, additional staffing or resources to enhance their learning and development.
