Model form and letter to help providers of early years education identify which children are eligible for the early years pupil premium.
The form will help early years providers identify which of the children in their care are eligible for the early years pupil premium (EYPP). We recommend that providers ask all parents and guardians, regardless of family income or circumstances, to complete the form when they enrol their child.
You can use the template letter to explain to parents what the EYPP is when you ask them to fill in the form.
You should share the completed form with your local authority so they can run the necessary checks and make sure you receive the EYPP funding you are entitled to.
You’re free to adjust the form and letter to meet your local needs. Some local authorities have produced their own standard letters which providers in their area can use instead.
Both documents are available in both ODT and Word formats.
Early years providers are any organisation that offers education for children aged under 5, including nurseries and childminders. They’re responsible for:
- identifying which of the children in their care may be eligible for the EYPP
- passing that information on to their local authority
