Are you eligible for Early Years Pupil Premium?



Taken from Bucks Early Years website:


The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is additional funding for Early Years providers to help them improve the education they provide for disadvantaged 3 and 4 year-olds. 

The parental income threshold has recently changed following the
Eligibility for free school meals, the early years pupil premium and the free early education entitlement for two-year-olds under universal credit consultation published in March 2018. 

Children whose parents/carers receive one of the following benefits will generate EYPP for their childcare provider:

  • Income Support (IS)
  • Income - based (not contribution-based) Job Seeker's Allowance (IBJAS)
  • The Guarantee element of the State Pension Credit 
  • Income-related employment and support allowance or financially supported by NASS (National Asylum Support Service)
  • Universal credit – their annual net earned income must be equivalent to and not exceeding £7,400, assessed on up to three of the parent’s most recent Universal Credit assessment periods
  • Child tax credit - except if they meet any of the following criteria:
    • Entitled to working tax credit (regardless of income)
    • Have an annual income in excess of £16,190

Where a parent is entitled to Working Tax Credit during the four-week period immediately after their employment ceases, or after they start to work less than 16 hours per week, their children are entitled to EYPP

Or the child has:

  • Been in local-authority care for 1 day or more in England or Wales.
  • Been adopted from care in England or Wales
  • Left care under a special guardianship order or residence order in England or Wales
