Pinxton Nursery School and Pinxton 0-5 Nursery School
What is pupil premium?
Early Years Pupil Premium was introduced in 2015 meaning that nursery schools and childcare providers who deliver three and four year old funded entitlement, were able to claim additional funding to improve the attainment of disadvantaged children who meet the eligibility criteria. This additional funding helps settings to ensure that these children have the best possible start to their education.
Evidence shows the less advantaged children start school significantly behind their peers. Good quality Early Years Education and childcare can reduce the gap. Therefore diminishing the difference.
Children can be eligible for Pupil Premium for a variety of reasons. These include family circumstances, such as income or occupations and whether or not they are in care. Providers are paid an extra rate of 53p per hour for these three and four year olds. Funding can be claimed for eligible children attending up to 15 hours per week. This means an extra £302 a year for each child.
