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 full time nursery have enjoyed listening to the story ‘What’s in the witch’s kitchen’. We used tweezers to free all the spiders from the spider web and practised drawing our own spider webs using anti-clockwise circles. We had lots of fun created our own magic potions using water and flavoured tea as well as a range of Halloween objects and talked about what our potions would do. We also had lots of fun exploring and carving our own pumpkins as well as creating our own pumpkin crafts #dcpscaterpillar #dcpseyfs #dcps30hours #dcpsliteracy #dcpsSTEM ... See MoreSee Less

Over the last few weeks the nursery children have been exploring the changes that occur in autumn by going on a leaf hunt and exploring our autumn tuff trays. They have made their own leaf pictures as well as created a their own autumn wreaths and scarecrows to keep the birds from eating the seeds we are planting next week (but don’t worry we will be making our own bird feeders too).
We have begun learning about harvest and why we celebrate this festival by listening to the story of the very helpful hedgehog. We have loved learning our new harvest songs and exploring a range of fruits and vegetables that the farmers have picked especially for us! #dcpscaterpillar #dcpseyfs #dcps30hours #dcpsstem #dcpsre

This week in nursery we have been exploring Autumn and harvest festival.
While exploring autumn we talked about the change in weather, what happens to some trees, made clay hedgehogs and explored various autumnal vegetables.
With Alexander ( the puppet) we talked about how the harvest festival is all about helping others. We helped him to think of ways to be a better friend and we all agreed having kind hands in Nursery is important! We have spent the week helping our friends and talking about how to help others in our lives. What a kind group of children we have in Nursery #dcpscaterpillar #dcpsre #dcpspshe #dcpslifeskills #dcpsmaths #dcpsstem

After seeing the real rocket at school last week the children were very keen to find out more. To follow this interest this week in nursery we have explored rockets! We watched rockets going into space, pretended to be space explorers in rockets using hoops, explored pictures of planets, used a parachute to send an astronaut into space and even made our own rockets. What a blast of a week we’ve had! #dcpscaterpillar #dcpsstem #dcpsscience ... See MoreSee Less

The fully time Nursery have enjoyed exploring the big field this week. We have been digging for treasure in the sandpit and made the most delicious mud pies in our outdoor kitchen by investigating how much water we should add to make the perfect consistency.
Digging on a large scale is great for building the children’s upper body strength which is essential before getting the children to draw and write. We also practise our balancing skills as we used the balance bikes to go around the track and explored our trim trail.
Inside we have been making our own potions using mint and lavender from our nursery garden and explored a range of natural materials. #dcpseyfs #dcpscaterpillar #dcps30hours #dcpslotc #dcpsliteracy #dcpsSTEM
