Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP)

Early Years settings, including our Nursery School are able to access additional funding to give further support to eligible children – this is known as Early Years Pupil Premium. We can claim this for children aged 3 or 4 years old whose parents are in receipt of 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


Children may also be eligible if they are currently being looked after by a local authority in England or Wales or if they have left care in England or Wales through:

  • adoption

  • special guardianship order

  • a child arrangements order


EYPP funding is used to support children’s learning and development. This will be informed by an understanding of the needs and preferences of individual children; It may include:

  • additional resources and equipment

  • access to new experiences

  • preparation for starting school

  • Training for staff, specific to the needs of individual children


At Atherstone Nursery School we use our funding in different ways depending on the needs of individual children.
