Early Years Pupil Premium

As a funded early learning provider we can claim extra funding for 3 and 4 year old children who are from low income households (annual family income under £16,190). This funding is called Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) and aims to support children's development, learning and care.

Is your child eligible for EYPP?

Your child must be 3 or 4 years old and accessing Free Early Learning (FEL)


The parents/carer must meet at least 1 of the following criteria:

  • 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 (with no working tax credit and annual gross income of less than £16,190)

  • working tax credit run on (paid for 4 weeks after working tax credit is stopped)

Or if the child has:

  • been looked after by any local authority for at least one day

  • been adopted from care

  • left care through special guardianship

  • been subject to a child arrangement order setting out with whom the child is to live (formerly known as residence order)

Registering Children for EYPP

When claiming your free early learning with us we will require you to complete and sign a funding document. Within this document you can register your child for EYPP, to do this you will need to complete the parent details which includes entering your national insurance number.

We then submit your details to the local council who will perform eligibility checks and notify us of the eligibility status for your child.

Once eligibility has been confirmed we then meet with you to explain how we intend to support your child with the use of the EYPP money.

As a registered provider please be assured we keep intricate details of the scheme and its delivery along with assessing the level of impact it has had.
