Early Years Pupil Premium
From April 2015, nurseries, schools, childminders and other childcare providers will be able to claim extra funding through the Early Years Pupil Premium to support children’s development, learning and care. We wanted to write to you to explain what the Early Years Pupil Premium is, explain who is eligible for this funding and, importantly, to ask you give us the required information so that we as a provider can claim the extra funding.
The Early Years Pupil Premium provides an additional £300 per year for three and four year old children whose parents are in receipt of certain benefits or who have been in care or adopted from care. This additional money could make a significant difference to your child’s education.
If you have older children you will be aware that a pupil premium has been available for school age children and it has proved to have given a real boost to the children receiving the funding. We want to do the same for our early years children entitled to this funding.
Therefore we ask that ALL PARENTS fill in the additional form asking for your date of birth, National Insurance Number or National Asylum Support Service (NASS) Reference Number. This will allow us to claim the additional Early Years Pupil Premium.
If you have any questions, please contact the School Office for assistance.
