Early Years Pupil Premium
The Early Years Pupil Premium is extra funding that aims to improve outcomes for disadvantaged 3 and 4 year olds who are receiving the free entitlement to free education. Children who meet the criteria will be eligible for up to £342 per year.
We use this money to obtain additional staff and resources that help improve the quality of education.
This past year the EYPP allocation at Woodlands Park was used to:
- Cover 44% of costs of artist working in Blue Room one day a week (0.2).
Our artist in residence plans a series of sessions which can be accessed by all children but which target children eligible for EYPP specifically. Over the year there have been a series of projects e.g. photography, sculpture or clay. These are followed by inviting the parent/carers to participate in workshops with their child. This intervention concentrates on listening, attention and speaking within a creative context.
Examples of interventions are:
Photography Project – with parent/carer photography walk
Green Screen Project - Groundswell Arts
Clay – with parent/carer workshop
Sculpture – with Tate Modern family trip
