What is EYPP - Early Years Pupil Premium?

Early Years Pupil Premium Funding at St Marys C of E Primary School

The Government has provided a package of early years pupil support funding money delegated from central Government to schools, based on a number of measures. This is known as Early Years Pupil Premium funding.

The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is additional funding for early years settings to improve the education they provide for 3- and 4-year-olds.

3- and 4-year-olds in state-funded early education will attract EYPP funding if they meet at least 1 of the following criteria:

At St Marys C of E Pre-School we use our EYPP funding to support all pupils and to diminishing the gap for disadvantaged pupils and supporting them in making better than expected progress in comparison to their peers.

Here at St Marys C of E Pre-School we value every child’s individual learning journey and believe that children make progress through high levels of wellbeing, involvement and exploratory play.
