Early Years Pupil Premium

Early Years Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2015.  It is additional funding allocated to early years providers to help them support their most disadvantaged children. The amount of funding received is based on the number of children who are registered for free school meals or are in the care of the local authority. These children need to be 3 or 4 years old and receiving government-funded early education.

The percentage of pupils at Central Nursery known to be eligible for free school meals is 30%.

Childcare Minister Sam Gyimah said:

I’m delighted we are helping the most disadvantaged children access high-quality early education, giving them the best possible start in life. The early years pupil premium gives money to providers so they can make sure eligible children have the best possible outcomes when they start school and beyond. The early years count and it will be life-changing for many of these children. I would encourage any parent who meets the criteria to let a local provider know, so that their child can get the right support at the right time.

Schools Minister David Laws said:

Every child should be able to reach their full potential, no matter what their background. The pupil premium is already helping to build a fairer society with opportunity for everyone. The extension of the pupil premium to early years will give toddlers from the poorest families the support they need to develop and learn at this important early stage. This additional funding will ensure providers have the resources to give all children the best possible start in life.
