Early years pupil premium

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 settings offering education and care for children aged under 5 include:  pre schools, private day nurseries, children centres, school governor run groups 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:

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 EYPP.

Children become eligible for free early education at different points in the year depending on when they turn 3. 4 year-olds in primary school reception classes who already receive the school-age pupil premium are not eligible for EYPP funding.

Information, support and guidance on the Early Years Pupil Premium funding can be found on the Early Years Team website - link opposite.
