The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) gives providers additional funding to support three and four year old children from low income families. The funding rate is 53p per hour per eligible child.
Three and four year olds are eligible for EYPP on their child universal 15 hours entitlement if their family gets one of the following:
If a child qualifies for EYPP under more than one set of criteria they will only attract the funding once.
Where a child is eligible for EYPP under the ‘other’ criteria listed below, the provider should make Slough Early Years Service aware of the child’s specific circumstances and make sure that appropriate details are recorded on the Parent Declaration Form.
The provider should make sure they have identified the disadvantaged children in their setting as part of the process for checking Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) eligibility. They will also use EYPP and any locally available funding streams or support to improve outcomes for this group.
For children who attract EYPP, funding will be paid in accordance with their actual hours of attendance based on the settings headcount submissions. Estimated headcount submissions, prior to the start of term, will support the settings to identify and plan for children accordingly. Settings must make sure they are able to demonstrate the benefit of the EYPP spend for the eligible child/children.
Possible ideas spending EYPP funding can be found at the Early Education website. This site also provides some case studies highlighting the benefits of targeting the EYPP spend.
