Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP)
From January 2015 eligible three and four year olds attending Ronald Tree Nursery School attracted the Early Years Pupil Premium funding if they meet at least one of the following criteria:
their family gets 1 of the following:
- Income Support
- income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
- income-related Employment and Support Allowance
- support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
- Child Tax Credit (provided they’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
- Working Tax Credit run-on, which is paid for 4 weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
- Universal Credit
- they have been looked after for 1 day or more
- they have been adopted from care
- they have left care under a special guardianship order or residence order
Children must be eligible for free three year old early education in order to attract 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. Please see the Early Years Pupil Premium Policy for further details on our Current Policies page.
The strategy for each year takes into account the baseline assessments of the children. Whilst the baselines have been completed Northamptonshire County Council has not yet provided information on which children are eligible for EYPP in 2020 to 2021 (20th October 2020). Therefore we are publishing the review of Expenditure for 2019 to 2020 and will update with the strategy in due course.
