Early Years Pupil Premium- Are you eligible?

The Pupil premium is some additional funding provided to early years settings as of April 2015 in addition to school funding for children aged 3 and 4 if they meet one 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.

The aim of the EYPP funding is to close the gap between children who are referred to as ‘disadvantaged’ by the government and other children by having some additional funding to raise further the quality of provision we offer.

“Behaviour is exceptional here. This is because adults know how to respond to children’s needs while having high expectations at all times.” OFSTED JAN 2020
