Early Years Pupil Premium

Early Years settings receive the Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) for each child they have that meets the criteria set by the Government. We have to show that we have used the money to help disadvantaged children by, for example: improving the quality of their setting; training staff to be more able to support children with extra needs; or provide resources and interventions that help children to catch up.

We have claimed  the EYPP for all 3 and 4 year old children at Appletree whose parents receive certain benefits, for example Universal Credit or Income Support, or for children who are in care,

This year 30% of children qualified for this funding and targeted work has led to very significant progress, however further targeted work will aim to close the gap in two areas of development in 2016/7.
