Since April 2015 the government has provided additional funding to improve the provision
of education for 3 and 4 year old children in state-funded settings.
Broomhall Nursery School receives over £300 each year for every eligible 3 or 4
year old who takes up the full 570 hours of Free Early Learning (FEL) they are entitled
to. In order to claim the funding we need to know which of our families meet at
least 1 of the following criteria.
We can claim the funding for your child if your family gets any 1 of the following:
income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
income-related Employment and Support Allowance
support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
Child Tax Credit (provided you are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have
an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
Working Tax Credit run-on, which is paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for
Working Tax Credit
We can also claim the funding for your child if:
they have been looked after for 1 day or more
they have been adopted from care
they have left care under a special guardianship order or residence order.
If you believe that any of the above apply to your family then please contact Tracey
or Sara in the office.
Use of Early Years Pupil Premium
The Early Years Pupil Premium funding is used to provide specific workshops for children
and their families looking at different aspects of the Early Years Foundation Stage.
Parents and carers have benefited from Maths Workshops and the chance to take home
Maths Bags full of fun learning resources. Phonics Workshops have supported parents
to explore the early stages of reading with their children. In the current year
we are using EYPP funding to run targetted communication, language and literacy groups.
