Early Years Pupil Premium

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:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance

  • The guaranteed element of the 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 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:
