Early Years Pupil Premium
Early Years Pupil Premium
Early Years Pupil Premium was introduced by government to help early years settings close the attainment gap between the most disadvantaged children and their peers. At the end of Reception, fewer children eligible for Free School Meals achieve a “good level of development” (GLD) than children who are not eligible. EYPP provides around £300 per eligible child and is intended to make a difference by having extra targeted strategies for the rate of progress these children make, and by ensuring practitioners focus specifically on these children’s progress.
