Your Pupil Premium Rates for 2018/19

Not to be left out after last weeks blog on Pupil Premium, here are the rates and information on the Early Years Pupil Premium for 2018/19. All early years providers who are eligible to receive funding for the three and four year old early education entitlement are also eligible to receive the EYPP. Unlike Pupil Premium the rate for EYPP is the same for everyone.

53p per hour per eligible pupil up to a maximum of 570 hours (£302.10 per year).

This is only funded on the universal 15 hours. If the pupil is in receipt of the additional 15 hours funding you will not receive any additional EYPP for them. If a child in local authority care is attending a setting in a different local authority, it is the responsibility of the local authority in which the setting is based to fund the EYPP. Remember, to get this funding you will need to apply for each pupil to your LA who will then handle checking eligibility, and so you can give correct information to your parents about this, the terms are below.

Three and four year olds will be eligible for EYPP if the child receives the universal 15 hours entitlement and they meet any of the following criteria:

Their family gets one of the following:

  • Income Support
  • income-based Jobseeker's 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 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 they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit - For places starting in the summer term of 2018 (on or after 1st April 2018), or any subsequent term, if a parent is entitled to Universal Credit they must have an annual net earned income equivalent to and not exceeding £7,400, assessed on up to three of the parent's most recent Universal Credit assessment periods.
