Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is additional funding to improve the educational outcomes for disadvantaged 3 and 4 year olds. The aim of the funding is to close the achievement gap between disadvantaged children and the rest so that all children are supported to develop the skills they need to be successful learners.

Research shows that disadvantaged children may start early education at a lower level of development than would be typical for their age. Research shows that access to high quality early years provision with at least good teaching and learning enables children to catch up quickly.

As part of the Ofsted framework, schools and settings are required to evidence the positive impact of intervention strategies on outcomes for all children, in particular disadvantaged children who are in receipt of additional funding.

The HfL Early Year’s team have developed a suite of documents to guide and support practitioners in recording and evaluating the work they do to make a difference to children in receipt of funding. The suite of documents includes:
