Early Education Entitlement for three and four year olds with an entitlement to Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP)

Parents may contact your setting with an eligibility code demonstrating their child’s entitlement for the additional EYPP funding. You will need to check the validity of the code. You can do this by clicking the link to access the online ECS.

As the online ECS is linked directly to the Department for Work and Pensions it is advisable to regularly check a child’s eligibility status. To ensure children remain eligible for the additional EYPP funding while attending your setting, you are required to validate their EYPP status on a termly basis.

If a child is looked after by their local authority, (known as Looked After Child) or the child who has left care through special guardianship or an adoption or residence order in England and Wales, (known as Previous Looked After Child) please continue with the current practice to check eligibility.
