What is EYPP?

 Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP)
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, with the intention of closing the gap between them and their peers.  

How is the Funding Allocated?

3 and 4 year olds in state-funded early education are eligible for Early Years Pupil Premium Funding if they meet at least one of the criteria:
If their family gets one of the following: 
  • Income support
  • Income based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided they’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credits and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on, which is paid for 4 weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal  Credit

If they are currently being looked after by a local authority in England or Wales

If they have left care in England or Wales through:

  • an adoption
  • a special guardianship order
  • a child arrangement order

Children become eligible for free early education at different points in the year depending on when they turn 3, and will be reassessed for eligibility on a termly basis.

 What Should the Early Years Pupil Premium Grant be Spent on?

We have to explain the reasoning behind the way this funding is spent and demonstrate the positive impact it has on this group of children’s progress because we are accountable to the DFE/Ofsted, Governors and the whole school community.

Wallsend Jubilee Primary School ensures that provision is made to secure high quality teaching and learning opportunities which meet the needs of all children.The grant will be spent in a variety of ways which will have an impact on the children's attainment in school and remove any potential barriers to learning.
