We also offer 30 hours of Funded Entitlement to some eligible 3 and 4 year olds,* between 8:45am-3:30pm, Monday to Friday during school terms.

Some 3 and 4 year olds may also be entitled to other pupil benefits as follows:

The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is an additional sum of money paid to childcare providers for children of families in receipt of certain benefits including:

  • Universal Credit with an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400
  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance (JSA)
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Support under Part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
  • Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for the four weeks after the person stops qualifying for Working Tax Credit)
  • Child Tax Credit (with no Working Tax Credit) with an annual income of no more than £16,190

 

The funding will be used to enhance the quality of their early years’ experience by improving the teaching and learning and facilities and resources, with the aim of impacting positively on your child’s progress and development. For more information, please speak to your childcare provider. In order for us to check your eligibility for EYPP, the personal details of the main benefit holder need to be completed in the ‘parent’ section of the form.

 

Disability Access Fund: 3 and 4 year old children who are in receipt of Child Disability Living Allowance and are receiving Funded Entitlement are eligible for Disability Access Fund (DAF). DAF is paid to the child’s early years setting as a fixed annual rate of £615 per eligible child. You should nominate the main provider where the local authority should pay the DAF on this form in section 4.

Special Educational Needs: If your child has special educational needs (SEN), contact your provider who may be able to access some additional funding to support your child in their Early Years setting.

Financial support for your childcare costs: For further information about 15 hours or 30 hours free childcare, Tax Free childcare, Tax Credits, Universal Credit for Childcare, Childcare Vouchers and Support whilst you study, please visit Childcare Choices.
