If your 3-4 year old child attends our Nursery School, you may be able to help us with gaining extra funding so we can do even more to support your child. This may be through specialist training for their staff or new experiences for the children or resources to challenge them to learn and develop.
The funding is called Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) and is paid directly to childcare providers.
If you include your National Insurance Number on the registration and funding forms, this will be used to allocate this funding.
