Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) Funding

Pupil Premium funding (PPG) is allocated to children of statutory school age 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.  The purpose of the funding is to raise attainment for children who are potentially disadvantaged by their circumstances. Funding can be used in a wide range of ways to meet the bespoke needs identified for each individual child.

Eligible children in Early Years receive Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP.) This funding equates annually to £302 per child. School leaders are accountable for how this money is spent and are required to work in partnership with parents in deciding how to allocate the funding.

Allocation of Funding

At the school we have used the funding in a range of ways to support individual children and their unique needs. This has included:

  • Training for staff
  • Creating story sacks to develop home learning
  • Intervention materials
  • Funding towards enrichment opportunities
  • Staff cover to support transition


The impact of EYPP funding on outcomes for children is monitored by Senior Leaders throughout the year in the following ways:

  • termly progress meetings that focus on outcomes for individual children
  • weekly briefings on individual children
  • observations of children in sessions
  • parent conferencing


A wide range of evidence is used to show the impact on funding on outcomes including:

  • Early Years Outcomes sheets
  • Individual trackers
  • Unique child summaries
  • Parent voice
  • Children’s voice
  • Case studies
