Early Years Premium

Working together, with Jesus beside us, to achieve our full potential.

Childcare providers can claim up to £300 per year for a child who meets the eligibility criteria.

If you are in receipt of any of the following benefits, please contact our Pre-School Managers – we may be able to attract some extra funding:

  • Income Support

  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance

  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance

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

  • The guaranteed element of States Pension Credit

  • Child Tax Credit (provided 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 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit

All 3 to 4 year olds in England can get 570 free hours per year. It is taken as 15 hours a week for 38 weeks of the year.

 

Last year, we received £604.20 in Early Years Pupil Premium. We used this to:

  • Purchase a variety of table top activities, which promoted the children’s skills in communication to help them play equally and sociably with their peers

  • Purchase a dolls pushchair

  • Purchase ‘people who help us’ dressing up clothes to promote the children’s imagination and collaborative play
