Early Years Pupil Premium

Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP)

Extra funding is now available to support some three and four year old children on funded childcare places. Up to £300 per year can be accessed for eligible children attending a private, voluntary, independent or governor run childcare provider graded by Ofsted as Outstanding, Good or Requires Improvement. This also applies to maintained nursery school classes.


Three and four year olds will be eligible if their parents are in receipt of one of the following benefits:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseekers 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 you'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 - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit.

*** In addition, a child will be eligible if they:

  • have been looked after by the local authority for at least one day
  • have been adopted from care
  • have left care through special guardianship; and
  • are subject to a child arrangement order


Applications for the funding must be made by the childcare setting where the child is attending. Parent/carers need to complete the attached form and give their consent to check eligibility for their child for Early Years Pupil Premium.
