The Early Years Pupil Premium

The Early Years Pupil Premium provides nurseries with an extra 53 pence per hour to support three and four year old children whose parents are in receipt of certain benefits or who were formally in local authority care. This means the nursery can receive an extra £302 a year for each child taking up the full 570 hours funded entitlement to early education.

We can use the extra funding in any way we choose to improve the quality of the early years education that we provide for your child. This could include for example additional training for our staff on early language, investing in partnership working with our colleagues in the area to further our expertise or supporting our staff in working on specialised areas such as speech and language.

It is well documented that high quality early education can influence how well a child does at both primary and secondary school so we do want to make the most of this additional funding.  If you think you may qualify please contact us for further information or see the Oxfordshire link below.
