How we have spent or are planning to spend our EYPP funding
Early Years Pupil Premium
Dear Parents/Carers – can you help?
In April, £50 million nationally will be allocated to Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) for our 3-4 year olds. This means schools will be able to use an extra £342 per year for our children who are eligible – looked after children, adopted children, special guardianship children, children subject to a child arrangement order and those children in families where the joint income is below £16,190 per year will be able to claim the EYPP including those families in receipt of:
- Income Support
- Income-based Jobseekers Allowance.
- Income-related Employment and Support Allowance.
- Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999.
- Guaranteed element of State Pension Credit.
- Child Tax Credit.
- Working Tax Credit.
School will be held in account for the spending of this money but ultimately it’s up to our school to decide how to best use the money. The funding could be used for your child to receive valuable support like additional teaching staff. The money follows the child and it will be same in all settings.
How the information in your Admission Form will be used
We will share the details in the form with the local authority if we feel your child will be eligible. The information on this form will be used by the council to confirm receipt of one of the listed welfare benefits.
We are committed to ensuring that the personal and sensitive information that we hold about you is protected and kept safe and secure, and we have measures in place to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.
We will use the information you provide to assess entitlement to the Early years Pupil Premium. The information will be shared with other council departments to offer benefits and services.
You will have the option to agree/not agree to us checking for EYPP entitlement on the admission form when your child starts.
