Early Years Pupil Premium
So far this year, we have been granted £1726.74 for children who are entitled to EYPP.
The early years pupil premium (EYPP) is additional funding for early years settings to improve the education they provide for disadvantaged 3- and 4-year-olds.
Early years providers are any organisation offering education for children aged under 5, including nurseries and childminders.
3- and 4-year-olds in state-funded early education will attract EYPP funding if they meet at least 1 of the following criteria:
• their family gets 1 of the following:
• Income Support
• 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 they’re 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 they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
• Universal Credit
• they are currently being looked after by a local authority in England or Wales
• they have left care in England or Wales through:
• an adoption
• a special guardianship order
• a child arrangement order
Children must receive free early education in order to attract EYPP funding. They do not have to take up the full 570 hours of early education they are entitled to in order to get
Children become eligible for free early education at different points in the year depending on when they turn 3. Details of the dates when children become eligible are available.
Please note that 4-year-olds in primary school reception classes who already receive the school-age pupil premium are not eligible for EYPP funding.
