Early Years Pupil Premium Strategy 2016-2017

What is the Early Years Pupil Premium?

The Early Years Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding for Early Years settings to improve the education of the most disadvantaged pupils. This allocation of money is available to any Early Years setting providing an education to 3 and 4 years olds. The money should be used to narrow the gap between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged pupils.

The funding equates to £302.10 per child if they meet the criteria for the Early Years Pupil Premium.
