Objectives in spending PPG

  • To continue to ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all our pupils
  • To enable all pupils to make at least typical progress
  • To offer intervention to enable progress to be accelerated in order to close in- school attainment gaps between eligible pupils and their peers.
  • To establish appropriate provision for all pupils and promote the need for age expectations to be met by all.
  • To ensure that our youngest children can go on to achieve the Good Level of Development at the end of the Foundation Stage.
  • To close gaps in attainment between eligible pupils and their peers nationally.





For the current academic year, School Governors have allocated Early Years Pupil Premium funding in the following ways:




Employing 1  additional Teaching Assistant within the nursery staffing structure

National ratios are 1:13 (eg 2 adults to our 26 children in each of the morning and afternoon sessions). We employ a third qualified adult to ensure quality interactions with our youngest children. As communication is an area of weakness for our intakes we will use this adult to target communication issues.




1 Level 3 TA at 37.5hrs is £22,000



Total proposed spend



£ 22,000


Expected Outcomes

  • At the end of Nursery pupils receiving EYPPG will be meeting age related expectations (30-50month) in all aspects.
  • Communication issues will have been identified early and provision either put in place or ready to start in Reception.
  • The gap between pupils receiving EY PPG and their peers will be reduced further so that in-school gaps are minimal and results are more in line with National figures for ALL pupils.
