The term after your child's third birthday you will be asked to fill out a form to see if your child is eligible for additional funding known as Early Years Pupil Premium. The Early Years Pupil Premium provides an extra 53 pence per hour for three and four year old children whose parents are in receipt of certain benefits or who were formerly in local authority care but who left care because they were adopted or were subject to a special guardianship or child arrangements order. This means an extra £302 a year for each child taking up the full 570 hours funded entitlement to early education. This additional money makes a significant difference to us. 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.We will inform you if this applies to your child.
