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 providers are any organisation offering education for children aged under 5, including nurseries and childminders.

Eligibility

3- and 4-year-olds in state-funded early education will attract EYPP funding if they meet at least 1 of the following criteria:

Their family gets 1 of the following:
Income Support
Income-based Jobseeker’s 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 they’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, which is paid for 4 weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
Universal Credit

They are currently being looked after by a local authority in England or Wales
They have left care in England or Wales through:

The school receives approximately £300 for each child who is eligible for Early Years Pupil Premium. It is the school’s responsibility to decide how this money is spent, in order to start to reduce the gaps between some disadvantaged children and their peers.
