Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) Funding

Heath Lane Nursery School and Children’s Club

Early Years Pupil Premium Allocation  & Spending 2015/16

 

In Hertfordshire, the Pupil Premium is allocated to children who are looked after by the local authority, those who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (also known as Ever 6 FSM) and for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.  Early Years Pupil Premium children,  EYPP children may have barriers to their learning and this funding will help to give them early  support to enable them to make better than would be expected  progress for their age.  

 

Our Nursery receives extra funding to support these children and this is called our Pupil Premium Allocation. We are accountable for how this money is spent and to ensure that appropriate support is in place for vulnerable groups. 

 

We have invested in whole staff training in using Readit2 with children who are eligible for the Early Years Pupil Premium Funding.   This will support children who may have barriers to learning.  This may have been caused through difficult experiences in their early years which  can be referred to as attachment trauma, or children who find it difficult to build relationships with adults,  providing nurturing support.   In addition, children who may have delayed speech, language and communication needs,  benefit from sharing a book, 1-1 with an adult.  Readit2 develops children's speaking and listening skills, confidence,  and their enjoyment in sharing a book. The programme also develops early reading skills. 

Training in Makaton has enabled staff to use sign language with children who may have delayed speech and will gain confidence in speaking by signing alongside the words they use.  

 

For the academic year 2015/16 Heath Lane Nursery School received £1487 in Early Years Pupil Premium funding.  6 Children were eligible.  

 

Total Funding Received for the academic year:    £1487
