Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP)
Nurseries, pre-schools, schools, childminders and other Early Years Providers are able to claim extra funding through the Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) to support children’s development, learning and care.
EYPP provides extra money to the Early Years Provider for three and four-year-old children whose parents are in receipt of certain qualifying benefits, or who have been adopted or are in care.
If you are eligible, your child could provide up to £342 extra for your child’s Early Years Provider. They can use the funding, in any way they choose, to improve the quality of the early years education provided for your child. This could include, for example:
- Additional training and support for staff working on specialised areas such as speech and language.
- Investing in partnership working with colleagues in the area to learn from each other.
- Resources to help raise the quality of your child’s education.
