Early Years Pupil Premium

The Early Years Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2015 to provide additional funding for early years settings to improve the education they provide for disadvantaged 3 and 4 year olds. The aim is to help settings to close the gap between children from disadvantaged backgrounds and their peers because research has shown that high quality early education and childcare can have a lasting impact on children’s attainment and behaviour, particularly for the most disadvantaged.
