Early Years Pupil Premium
Our EYPP governor is Mrs. Julie Spencer. Mrs. Spencer regularly visits nursery to look at how we are using the EYPP allocation and the impact it is having on eligible and other children.
The main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils are:
- Delayed speech and language
- Communication skills
- Personal social and emotional needs
In order to address these barriers, the funding allocation will be used for:
- WELCOMM Intervention
- Talking Together – Speech and language intervention
- Weekly Forest School Sessions
- 1:1 support
- Target time
- Play Therapy for children with behavioural and emotional needs.
Ightenhill Nursery School will measure the impact and effect of the expenditure by:
- Tracking and analysing assessment data in the prime areas.
- Using WELLCOMM assessments to measure children’s progress in speech and language development.
- Use forest school assessments at the start and end of each block to measure children’s progress and the impact of the sessions with regards to Personal, Social and Emotional Development and communication and language.
- Use of monitoring and observations of the intervention sessions.
- Use attainment and progress data to identify how the allocation has also had an impact on eligible and other pupils.
If you require any further information or would like to see some of our interventions in action, please do not hesitate to contact me.
