Early Years Pupil Premium Statement

Early Years Pupil Premium Statement Summer 2021 (April-August )

We have 5 children in receipt of Early Years Pupil Premium totalling £509.86

Desired Outcome

Enhanced wellbeing for the children.

Chosen Approach

Create a cosy corner outside for children to access when needed.

Evidence

Our EYPP children all enjoy spending lots of time outdoors. Following covid our EYPP Children particularly require support with PSED, and the changes they have experienced. Practitioners requested the use of a cosy corner to give children a breakout space and the opportunity to spend time with practitioners engaging in small individual activities and conversations.

The cosy corner provides opportunities for conversations, support and time to reflect with our children and practitioners

Improvements

Analysis and discussion following the term suggested that staff wanted more time to encourage quality interactions in the space.

Increased confidence and independence.

Run weekly outdoor learning sessions.

Outdoor learning is shown to increase children’s confidence and independence. We will provide staff training on outdoor learning. We will encourage our EYPP children to attend these sessions and work on activities to support confidence and independence.

Adventurers Team

Outdoor learning sessions were a great success. Children’s confidence noticeable grew as the weeks went on.
