Early Years Pupil Premium

Is your three or four year old entitled?

Nurseries, pre-schools and childminders providing Government funded education places can receive additional funding to support the development, learning and care of eligible children that attend free early years education sessions. Your family is eligible for the premium if you are in receipt of certain benefits; or your child is looked after by the Local Authority, or has been adopted from care, or has left care under a special guardianship order or residence order in England or Wales.


Your child could benefit from:


  • Programmes to support speech and language development
  • Extra help to prepare for starting school
  • Further training for staff who will be better equipped to support your child
  • Additional support obtained from your child’s setting by pooling the funding together with other education providers.


For more information and to check your family’s eligibility, visit the Services for Young Children website here or speak to your child’s nursery, pre-school, childminder or local children’s centre.
