Early Years Pupil Premium

The government allocates extra money per pupil if their family meet certain criteria to their household income.

Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) funding is used to help narrow the gap between the lowest achieving children and those who are making appropriate progress or above.

We use this funding to provide resources and activities to ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all children.
