The Early Years Pupil Premium will be given to early years providers who are delivering the funding entitlement for 3- and 4-year-olds. This year the funding equates to £302.10 extra per year for each disadvantaged child who meets the eligibility criteria. As at September 2019 we have one child eligible for this funding. In order for F&B to claim the right amount of funding, we need your help.
Early Years Pupil Premium is additional funding for early years settings to improve the education they provide for disadvantaged three and four year olds.
All providers delivering funded early education places will be eligible to receive the Early Years Pupil Premium.
Early Years Pupil Premium can be claimed by the childcare provider if a child at their setting is accessing free early education for three and four year olds and the child's parent or carer receives one of the following benefits:
* 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 the family is not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
* Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for four weeks after a family stops qualifying for Working Tax Credit).
Or the child falls into one of the following groups:
* Looked after by the local authority
* Adopted from care
* Has left care through a special guardianship arrangement
* Has left care and is subject to a child arrangement order (previously known as a residence order)
