SEN Funding


We are able to apply for additional funding for children in reciept of either the 2 year old or 3/4 year old funding, if your child has additional needs that require more support than we can usually offer. We also support application requests for EHCP's for children who require more complex support. 


Pupil Premium Funding


For families in receipt of certain benefits, the government top up the child's funding we recieve to enable us to provide addtional opportunities for these children. We decide how to spend this money depending on the individual needs of the child. 


In the past, we have spent the money on:


  • Early talk boost training for pre-school staff as the children in receipt of pupil premium required additional support with their communication and language
  • Additional staff members out of ratio to carry out Early Talk Boost sessions
  • Additional staff members to provide small group activities out of the setting
  • Resources to support development in identified areas of learning for individual children



Childcare Vouchers and schemes


We accept payments through the childcare voucher schemes available.
