Early Years Pupil Premium

EARLY YEARS PUPIL PREMIUM 2018-19

This year our Early Years Pupil Premium has been put towards the cost of buying in specialist Speech and Language Therapy from the Speech and Language department at Milton Keynes Hospital.  

We have made this decision based on the number of children who enter the Nursery School with very limited speech and communication skills upon entry to Nursery.  

This service and support in school makes a tremendous difference to pupil outcomes across all areas of the curriculum and supports our school leavers to be more school ready.  By working collaboratively with the Speech and Language service children are provided with a consistent approach between 1-1 therapy sessions they may be accessing at the hospital as well as in the Nursery environment. 

Staff have also received specialist training which again supports our practice in Nursery School.
