Early Years Pupil Premium - information for providers

Three and four year old children attending an early years education setting may be eligible to receive Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP). Providers could claim an additional £302 per year for each child to spend on supporting their development, learning and care.

National data and research shows that children who meet the Early Years Pupil Premium criteria may need to get the most from their early years education. Like the Pupil Premium available for Hampshire schools for children in Reception up to Year 11, the Early Years Pupil Premium will provide nurseries, pre-schools and childminders with extra funding to support children in receiving the best start they can.

  • All providers delivering funded early years education places will be eligible to receive the Early Years Pupil Premium

  • Children must receive free Early Years Education (EYE) funding in order to attract the EYPP funding

  • Children will not need to access their full EYE entitlement to be eligible as providers will be paid on a pro rata basis

  • The amount of 53p is a national hourly rate, set in the Early Years National Funding Formula

  • Local authorities will pass the full rate for each eligible child onto the provider
