Early Years Pupil Premium
Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP)
The Early Years Pupil Premium is extra funding that aims to improve outcomes for disadvantaged 3 and 4 year olds who are receiving the free entitlement to free education. Children who meet the criteria will be eligible for an extra 53p per hour (approx £300 per year).
We use this money to obtain additional staff and resources that help improve the quality of education.
This year the EYPP allocation at Woodlands Park is used to:
- Cover 30% of costs of artist working in Blue Room one day a week (0.2).
Our artist in residence plans a series of sessions which can be accessed by all children but which target children eligible for EYPP specifically. Over the year there have been a series of projects e.g. photography, sculpture or clay. These are followed by inviting the parent/carers to participate in workshops with their child. This intervention concentrates on listening, attention and speaking within a creative context.
