From April 2015, settings in England have access to the Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) to support disadvantaged 3- and 4-year-olds. Although the government is not specifying how this should be used, settings will need to be able to demonstrate to Ofsted that they are using it to help close the gap between the attainment of the most disadvantaged children and their peers.
In Wales, Early Years Pupil Deprivation Grant (EYPDG) is available from 2015-16.
Our Associates can provide consultancy to help you identify the most effective use of EYPP/EYPDG for your children, and put in place appropriate ways to monitor the impact of your actions.
