Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is extra funding available to Happy Days that can improve the support we are able to offer children and how we spend the money is recorded and shared with parents. It is extremely positive for their child.
Parents are able to claim this funding if their family is in receipt of the following benefits:
- Income Support
- Income-based Job Seekers Allowance (NOT contribution based JSA)
- Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (NOT contribution based ESA)
- Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 – National Asylum Seekers Support (NASS)
- The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
- Child Tax Credit (you must NOT be entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenue & Customs) that does not exceed £16,190)
- Working Tax Credit “run-on” – the payment you receive for a further four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
- Universal Tax Credit
Parents may also attract funding for the setting if their child has:
- Been looked after for one day or more
- Been adopted from care
- Left to care under a special guardianship or residence order
If parents think they may be eligible for Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) then they can speak to a member of staff at Happy Days about how to claim.
