Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP)

Three and four year olds attending Westminster Nursery School will be able to get Early Years Pupil Premium funding if they meet at least one of the following criteria:

Children with entitlement are awarded £0.53 per hour additional funding. This equates to £302.10 per EYPP eligible pupil over a full school year.

It is for each individual school to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. However, schools are to be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.

Westminster nursery chooses how the EYPP is spent after reviewing the individual needs of each child, in order to develop each child’s potential to the maximum.



In 2015-16 there were 9 children eligible for EYPP. This equated to £2357.97

  • How EYPP was spent in 2015-16 –

123 Magic training,

TA support - Nurture groups, behaviour management, fine motor skill development.

External Speech and Language assessment and support

  • What impact did this have on eligible and other pupils? –

All EYPP children made good progress in the prime areas which were identified as specific needs. This was achieved through the extra support and identified activities which were put in place. Non EYPP children were included in some activities such as circle time, nurture sessions which also benefited them.

We currently have 7 children eligible for EYPP

This equates to £2114.70 for the whole of the school year. The money is to be spent as per the following table, and this will be monitored to see the impact that the funding has on the specific children.


2016-17 - Main Barriers to Achievement for EYPP Eligible Pupils

  • Speech and Language – Delayed language development, impact of EAL, all aspects of CL, most particularly speaking.
  • Physical Skills Support – Fine motor skills have been identified as a barrier to progression across the EY Development Matters.
  • Social Skills Interactions – Ensuring age appropriate social skills interactions between the eligible and non-eligible pupils, this area is seen as important as a link to all areas of development.
  • Extending Communication and Language – all children whether at age appropriate level or below, benefit from being extended in their communication and language, through challenges and activities set, in small group time.
