Pupil Premium
From April 2015, Leasowe Nursery School and Family Centre have been able to claim extra funding through the Early Years Pupil Premium. This funding is to support children's development, learning and care. We use the extra funding to make sure the children who are eligible make the most progress they can whilst in Nursery School. They are then better placed to start school ready to meet expected goals in Reception and Key Stage 1.
The Early Years Pupil Premium is £302 per child per year. This is for children who are 3 and 4 years old in families where parents are claiming certain benefits, children who were / are in local authority care or are subject to special guardianship or a child arrangements order.
Although the funding is only an extra 53p per hour, it will make a difference to every child who is eligible. In 2016 to 2017, we estimate our Early Years Pupil Premium will bring another £7,000 to £10,000 of funding to our budget.  Please make sure you claim this funding, if you need more information, please ask us for advice and we will take you through the application process.
In 2016 / 2017, we have looked at how best to use our funding to make sure our children make the most progress they can.
In the Autumn term 2016, the additional funding was spent to increase the staffing ratio in Nursery School. This has helped support children who were not yet potty / toilet trained and / or identified as needing some extra support in areas of language development such as listening and attention, speaking and understanding. In the Spring term 2017, funding was again used to support children with their toileting, self help skills and to establish a series of language groups with our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator and Speech and Language Therapist.
