Maidenbower Infant School New Starters Stay and Play
For all parents with children starting at Maidenbower Infant School in September, Stay and Play sessions are being held on Tuesday 20th June and Tuesday 27th June. These sessions are a very important part of your's and your child's induction into school. If your child attends a nursery session on a Tuesday Morning and you are unable to take your child to the sessions due to work commitments, please see a member of staff.
Early Years Pupil Premium
From April 2015, nurseries, schools, childminders and other childcare providers have been able to claim extra funding through the Early Years Pupil Premium to support children’s development, learning and care. This premium is paid to us for children who qualify under the Early Years Pupil Premium criteria.
We can use the extra funding in any way we choose to improve the quality of the early years education that we provide for your child. This could include, for example, additional training for our staff on early language, investing in partnership working with our colleagues in the area to further our expertise or supporting our staff in working on specialised areas such as speech and language.
For the academic year 2015/2016 we received £438.84 and have improved the quality of our provision by:
Staff attending training to enhance our outdoor provision
Purchasing new equipment to provide a more stimulating outside area
holding 3 sessions of yoga for a small group of children
