Early Years Pupil Premium

Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is additional funding for early years pre-school settings to improve the education they provide for disadvantaged 3 and 4 year-olds including, but not restricted to, those adopted from care.

Funding equates to £302 per child per year (pro-rata for children who access less than the full free early years entitlement) and early years providers can choose how they use the money to improve the quality of provision they offer. For instance, they could:

  • Pool the Early Years Pupil Premium to purchase shared services such as an Early Years Graduate or Speech and Language Therapist
  • Provide additional training for staff
  • Enhance speech and language development initiatives
