Early Years Pupil Premium


Summer Term 2017

Income received: £4,330.10

In the Summer term, the Early years Pupil Premium funding continued to support the delivery of intervention groups for Language and Emotional needs.

All F1 children identified as qualifying for the funding were included in World Explorers groups at some point during the academic year.

The Nursery rhyme group afforded a wonderful opportunity for exploring songs and music, which further supported language, literacy and creative skills in Pupil Premium children who needed this.

The 3 year old children who remained in the 2s to 3s base to better meet their needs had lots of opportunities in the Summer term to visit the F1 nursery supported by key staff, to make it easier for them to move through in September.

Early Years Pupil Premium funding money was also spent on making some number packs, to enable parents to support number and counting skills at home.

Funded children identified as High achievers were included in Phase 2 phonics sessions and additional teacher-led World Explorers sessions, designed to stretch thinking further.

Narrowing the gap:

Careful analysis of exit data for the children qualifying for Early Years Pupil Premium funding who moved to school shows us that, Pupil Premium children made excellent progress in all areas of learning. The gap between all children and pupil premium children narrowed in almost all areas. In Personal, Social and Emotional Education, Communication and Language, Physical Development, Literacy and Understanding the World, the gap ranged from 4-6%, which is low. Pupil Premium children made up significant ground in the Prime areas, which will really support their readiness for school. PSED flagged up as an issue for PP children in the previous year, but the gap narrowed to just 4%, reflecting the emphasis placed on this area through planning and supported by the provision of more nurture groups and World Explorers, funded through Pupil Premium.

In the previous year the gap did not narrow in Literacy. However, on exit in July, 74% of PP children were working within the expected level. The gap narrowed by 3% to just 6%. This reflects the intervention groups to strengthen speaking skills (Talking Tigers, Talk Boost, Charlie Chatters) and the DEP priority to develop the literacy skills of disadvantaged children.



Spring Term 2017

Income received - £4,129.00

Data monitoring demonstrates the Pupil Premium funded children are progressing well.

Pupil Premium children identified as needing an extra boost in literacy have attended our nursery rhyme group every Friday. Funding has been spent on resources to support this group and cover for a member of staff to deliver it. Parents have commented on how well they know the rhymes and enjoy talking resources to use at home. 

All Pupil Premium children who will start Primary School in September will have attedned our World Explorers group by the end of this term; engaging in real life learning experiences in the nursery garden. This not only supports their understanding of the world around them, but supports their personal, social and emotional development and communication skills, vital to help them be 'school ready'. 

As with last year, a number of children who turned three in the previous Autumn were not yet ready to work in our F1 nursery, so some funding was used to enable them to stay in the 2s to 3s room, wihtin a 1 to 4 ratio, which better meets their developmental needs. 

Pupil Premium funded children remain a priority for language intervention groups. We are using the Early Talk Boost programme, which was purchased with Early Years Pupil Premium funding. 

Next term we are planning to include any high achieving Pupil Premium children in teacher focused activities to challenge and extend their learning. We will also fund the production of some number resources to share with Early Years Pupil Premium parents.
