From April 2015, Henry Allen Nursery school has been able to claim additional funding through the Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) with the aim of supporting and enriching children’s development, learning and care to diminish differences in progress and attainment. All children aged three and four, who meet the eligibility criteria will benefit from the funding. This funding is paid directly to us on an hourly rate basis, linked to claimed hours for entitled children. The annual value for a 15-hour place over a full year is just over £300. In order to be able to claim this funding we require parents to sign the funding agreement which asks for details of parent’s date of birth and National Insurance number.
