Pupil Premium EYFS

What is Early Years Pupil Premium?

From April 2015 nurseries and schools were able to claim additional funding through the Early Years Pupil Premium to support children’s development, learning and care. National data and research says that children eligible for free school meals (FSM) tend to do less well. The Early Years Pupil Premium provides extra funding in order to close this gap.

The Early Years Pupil Premium provides an extra 53p per hour for three and four year olds whose parents are in receipt of certain benefits or who have been in care or adopted from care. This means an extra £302 (just over £100 per child per term) per year for each child taking up the full 570 hours funded entitlement to early education.


How are EYPP eligible children identified?

Initially letters and forms are sent to all children. Returns are recorded in order to highlight and send further forms to those who do not return paperwork. Older siblings are checked for those qualifying for FSM. Those who are eligible are approached individually. All parents are given the opportunity to come into school for support when completing paperwork.


Who is eligible in Foundation Stage for 2019-2020?

Over the current academic year, we have the following eligibility for EYPP

Autumn Term – 16 children = £1,908.00

Spring Term– 18 children = £1574.10

Summer Term –TBC. Due to Corona virus the summer census was not completed until September. 

Early Years Pupil Premium Funding 2019-2020

This week the nursery children have explored the five currant buns nursery rhyme. We have been practising our careful counting, mark making and recognising numbers. We used the gym space to make big circles in the air and then on paper using both our left and right hands to develop our bilateral coordination and crossing the midline ( getting ready for writing) We have had fun acting as bakers, shop assistants and customers in our Denbigh bakery. The children also loved baking their own cakes #dcpsmath #dcpscaterpillar #dcpsdt ... See MoreSee Less

The Nursery children have loved exploring our new outdoor area. They demonstrating their confidence and determination as they walked across the rope ladder and showed off their fantastic balancing skills as they walked along our balancing beam. The children have loved making potions in the mud kitchen and exploring our giant sand pit. We have been so impressed by how kind all the children have been in taking turns on our balance bikes. Well done! #dcpscaterpillar #dcpseyfs #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less

This week we have been exploring the nursery rhyme twinkle twinkle little star as well as learning all about fireworks. We have made firework pictures, counted stars, jumped off benches like fireworks and learnt the Makaton signs for fireworks and twinkle twinkle. We used ribbons to pretend to be fireworks and made fantastic firework sounds! While outside we’ve started to explore our new fantastic outside area. What a busy week!

This week in Nursery we learnt all about caterpillars. We started off by talking about what we already know about caterpillars and thanks to the hungry caterpillar story we knew some important facts already. During the week we watched videos about real life caterpillars and drew pictures talking about what we had seen. We also shared information books and found out about real caterpillars.
Some of the children matched the real life caterpillars looking at each picture, talking about what they looked like and if we liked them.
At the end of the week we explored the HUGE track around the school field and took our bikes out to ride around it #dcpscaterpillar #dcpsliteracy #dcspscience #dcpspe
