Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP)

Educational research over time has shown that the vast majority of vulnerable children do not make the same academic progress as their peers. For this reason some children aged 3 and 4 attending Nursery are eligible for Early Years Pupil Premium or if your child has a disability or special educational need the Disability Access Fund. This is a small amount of additional funding from the government to provide additional teaching resources while your child is at nursery.

If you think your child may be eligible please speak to a member of staff at the nursery.

How we use EYPP and disability access funding

The ethos behind this additional funding is equality for all children. At Vanessa Nursery we use this funding to provide swimming costumes, wet weather clothing and sensory resources. This enable all children to take part in the whole curriculum and therefore have the same opportunities to learn and develop as their peers. Any remaining funds go towards cooking resources and fruit/snacks for the children while in nursery.

We also provide breakfast on arrival for all children in the nursery and a healthy snack for those attending in the afternoons.

If you would like more information about Nursery funding, the curriculum or swimming and Forest school please speak to your key person.
