London, United Kingdom, September 03, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The Department for Education recently announced £50 million of funding to improve the quality of early years provision for disadvantaged children from 2015-16. Our Preparing for the Early Years Pupil Premium Conference is perfectly timed to explore the opportunities this funding presents.
Bringing together the Department for Education, leading agencies and local early years providers, this event is your opportunity to take away EYPP implementation strategies from head teachers working in deprived areas, learn ways to effectively pool pupil premium funding and engage with the Private, Voluntary and Independent providers.
Key issues to be covered at this conference include:
Hear from the Department for Education on the latest national policy and their expectations on Early Years Pupil Premium accountability and future direction of travel
Examine guidance on tracking and reporting Pupil Premium spending and measuring the impact on progress and attainment
Learn how local authorities plan to identify children eligible for the EYPP funding and support providers in the delivery of services
Explore how Pupil Premium can be used to recruit highly skilled staff to improve social and emotional conditions for children’s development
Do not miss the opportunity to learn from leading experts as well as practical case studies and ensure you are prepared to utilise this funding to raise the quality of early years provision and support deprived pupils to exceed expectations and achieve school readiness.
