Children must be eligible for free three year old early education in order to atract EYPP funding. Please ask at reception if you are unsure of how to claim.
Children attracting pupil premium will receive additional support from an early years assistant to improve their learning outcomes.
The Governing Body has compiled a report explaining how the funding was used between September 15 and July 2016 to provide additional support to the children who were eligible and analysing the impact of this support.
“All of the staff are excellent they appear to genuinely care about all of the children.”
