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 2018/2019, to date, we have received £655.08 and have improved the quality of our provision for the children by:
Providing Musical Hands Sessions and Musical Mini's sessions throughout the year to develop self-confidence and communication skills.
Buying resources to enhance the nursery which will support communication development.
Investing in staff training and buying resources to enable us to offer Early Talk Boost sessions to children to develop their communication skills and listening and attention skills.
For the academic year 2017/2018 we received £852.24 and have improved the quality of our provision for the children by:
Providing Musical Hands Sessions throughout the year to develop self-confidence and communication skills.
Providing football sessions during the summer term to develop physical skills alongside listening and co-ordination skills.
Sourcing new resources to further develop a stimulating outside area to allow the children to use their physical skills.
