Early Years Pupil Premium

The Early Years Pupil Premium

Maintained nursery schools are able to claim extra funding called ‘Early Years Pupil Premium’. The nursery can use this extra funding (£100 per eligible child, per term) to improve the quality of the early years education that we provide for your child.

The nursery can claim the additional funding for 3 and 4 year old children whose parents are in receipt of the following benefits:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Universal Credit
  • 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 you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)

Three and four year olds will also be eligible if:

  • they have been in local-authority care for 1 day or more in England or Wales
  • they have been adopted from care in England or Wales
  • they have left care through a special guardianship order or a child arrangement order in England or Wales

If you feel you are eligible please complete the form below and return it to the school.

Pupil Premium Form

The information you provide will be used by the council to confirm receipt of one of the listed welfare benefits. They will do this by checking work benefit data provided by HMRC and DWP. This will allow us to claim the additional Early Years Pupil Premium. You are free to withdraw your consent so that your details are not used in future. Whether you use this scheme or not will not affect any of the benefits you may be entitled to.
