The Early Years Pupil Premium is additional funding for Early Years settings to improve the education provided for disadvantaged 3 and 4 year olds.
It is the responsibility of each setting to identify children and families that are eligible for the funding and support them to apply for it.
If a child is eligible the setting will receive £300 to support them. This equates to 53p an hour or £25 per month. This is in comparison to the £1,300 that primary schools receive per pupil for Pupil Premium. Primary Schools have received Pupil Premium funding since 2011, with Early Years settings receiving the funding from 2015.
