Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP)

The Early Years Pupil Premium is additional funding for Early Years providers to help them improve the education they provide for disadvantaged 3 and 4 year-olds.  

Please click here to find out if you are eligible for Early Years Pupil Premium

We would encourage providers to speak to parents to find out who is eligible for EYPP funding. In particular, the parents of children who took up the free entitlement of 15 hours for 2 year olds, as some of these children may attract EYPP when they turn 3. Providers must ensure the relevant section within the Parent /Provider Agreement (PPA-U or PPA-E) is filled in for eligible children.

Only families whose annual net earned income is £7,400 or less will be eligible for this additional funding. This threshold has recently changed following the "Eligibility for free school meals, the early years pupil premium and the free early education entitlement for two-year-olds under universal credit" consultation published in March 2018. 

Or the child has:

  • Been in local-authority care for 1 day or more in England or Wales.
  • Been adopted from care in England or Wales
  • Left care under a special guardianship order or residence order in England or Wales 

Where a parent is entitled to Working Tax Credit during the four-week period immediately after their employment ceases, or after they start to work less than 16 hours per week, their children are entitled to EYPP

Please note - For parents accessing their Extended Funding Entitlement, Pupil Premium will only be paid to providers for the Universal 15 hours a child attends. Any additional hours claimed under the Extended entitlement will not attract Pupil Premium funding.
