Pupil Premium

Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) for 3 and 4-year-olds

All early years providers who deliver Government funded early education can claim the early years' pupil premium (EYPP) for three and four-year-old children whose parents are in receipt of one or more of the following benefits:

  • Income Support

  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance

  • Universal Credit

  • 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

Three and four-year-olds will also be eligible if:

  • 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

  • they have left care in England or Wales through a special guardianship order or a child arrangement order aid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax

Where parents or carers are found to be eligible, this could provide up to an extra £300 for your child’s nursery, pre-school or childminder to fund valuable support like extra training or, resources to help raise the quality of the child’s early education.  Parents will be asked to complete details on the parent carer declaration with their chosen provider or providers if their children access a funded early education place at more than one setting.
