Early Years Pupil Premium: What is it?
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.
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 one of the following:
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 ( the dates when children become eligible) .
Please note that 4-year-olds in primary school reception classes who already receive the school-age pupil premium are not eligible for EYPP funding.
