If your child is in receipt of the early education entitlement and was adopted from local authority care or left care under a special guardianship order or child arrangements order, your child’s early education provider can claim the Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP). The EYPP is worth an extra £300 per child and is paid to early education providers to improve the quality of provision for vulnerable and disadvantaged children.

If your child is eligible to attract the EYPP and is accessing the early education entitlement, let your early education provider know. You will be asked to provide evidence of your child’s status, such as a copy of the adoption order. More information about the EYPP can be found here.
