Early Years Pupil Premium supports early years providers to access additional funding to support improved outcomes for eligible children. Early Years providers can claim EYPP a the same as they submit their claim for early years funding to the Local Authority for eligible 3 and 4 year olds.
Your early years provider will be able to discuss EYPP with you. They will be able to tell you how the claim for funding is made and what they do with the money to support your child once they receive it from Havering council.
Families may be eligible for free funded education and care for their three and four year olds if the child is receiving their free early education and childcare and if the parent receives one of the following:
- Income Support
- Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA)
- Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
- Universal Credit
- Tax credits and you have an annual income of under £16,190 before tax
- The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
- Support through part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act
- The Working Tax Credit 4-week run on (the payment you get when you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)
Your child may also be eligible if any of the following apply:
- they’re looked after by a local council
- they have a current statement of special education needs (SEN) or an education, health and care (EHC) plan
- they’ve left care under a special guardianship order, child arrangements order or adoption order
Please note four year olds in primary school reception classes who already receive the school-age pupil premium are not eligible for EYPP funding.
