Early Years Pupil Premium
Your child’s early years education provider could get up to £353 per year to help with your child’s education. This will be paid direct to your provider.
Who can apply
You can apply for early years pupil premium if your child is aged 3 or 4 and you get 15 hours free childcare.
You must also get at least one of the following:
- Income Support
- income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
- income-related Employment and Support Allowance
- support under part six of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
- Child Tax Credit (provided you are 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 for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
- Universal Credit – your household income must be less than £7,400 a year after tax not including any benefits you get
You may also get early years pupil premium if your child is currently being looked after by a local authority in England or Wales or if your child has left care in England or Wales through:
- special guardianship order
- a child arrangements order
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.
