  • EYPP Funding

    The early years pupil premium (EYPP) is additional funding for early years settings to improve the education provided for disadvantaged 3- and 4-year-olds.


    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: 

    • An adoption
    • a special guardianship order
    • a child arrangement order

    We work with families in receipt of EYPP to identify how the additional funding can be utilised at our nurseries.
