Early Years Pupil Premium

Carlinghow Princess Royal J, I and N School

Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) 2014-15 Academic Year Report

 

The EYPP was introduced in Summer 2015.

Number of Children Eligible for funding: 9 children

Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) Allocation for 2014/15 academic year was: £858

 

The EYPP allocation for 2014/2015 Summer Term was targeted to:

  1. Provide additional focussed activities led by an experienced practitioner in the Early Years Foundation Stage to ‘narrow the gap’ and improve levels of attainment, particularly focussed on communication and language and personal, social and emotional development.

 

100% of children in receipt of EYPP received additional support.

 

The table below illustrates Attainment at the end of the Academic Year (July) for the eligible children.

The strands where the highest number of children did not attain their age related expectation are (at least 70%):

Moving and Handling

Reading

Writing

Numbers

People and Communities

Exploring and Using Media and Materials

Being Imaginative

 

This underlines the continued importance of focussing interventions on those strands of learning.

The lower level of attainment does not mean that the interventions have had a limited impact but rather reflect that the starting point for some of these children was very low.

 

Because the EYPP was introduced mid-way through the academic year progress comparisons and conclusions are more difficult to reach. A clearer picture should be available at the end of the 2015-16 academic year when eligible children will have benefitted from a whole year of intervention and comparisons with initial assessments in September will be more meaningful. However the table above clearly demonstrates the positive impact that the interventions and small group work have had on the children in receipt of EYPP.
