Pupil Premium

Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is additional funding for early years settings to improve the education provided for three and four year olds.

Three and four year old children will attract EYPP if their family meets at least one of the criteria listed:

  • Income Support
  • Jobseekers Allowance
  • Employment and Support Allowance
  • State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit) Universal Credit OR Is a looked after child

For the year 2017 - 2018 St Paul's Nursery received  £2410.73 to improve teaching and learning for children who are eligible for pupil premium.


With agreement between the headteacher and parents £2000 was used to allow children to access longer sessions at the nursery who would not have otherwise been able to afford it. This ensured that children left us ready for school, having experienced longer days in a setting.

£410.73 was used to train a teaching assistant and allow time off timetable for her to increase her knowledge and skills when working with children with speech and language difficulties. This has meant that the school has been able to work in small groups and one to one with children who have difficulties around vocabulary, pronunciation, understanding and sentence formation.
