Early Years Pupil Premium for 3 and 4 year olds

If your child is 3 or 4 years old, Longham Pre-School can claim an additional £300 per year to spend on enriching your child's education. The funding is called Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP).

It will help your child to:

  • benefit from extra resources and equipment suited to their needs

  • enjoy a range of new play, learning and activity experiences

  • be prepared for starting school

If you receive one of the following benefits, Longham Pre-School may be entitled to claim funding for your child:

  • Income support

  • Income based Jobseekers Allowance

  • Income related Employment and Support Allowance

  • Child Tax Credit (providing you're not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)

  • Working Tax Credit Run-on, paid for four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit

  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

  • The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit

Or if your child:

  • has been looked after by the local authority in care for at least one day

  • has been adopted from care

  • has left care through special guardianship

  • is subject to a child arrangement order

If you think you qualify, it's quick and easy. Please come and talk to us and we will verify your eligibility and apply for the funding.
