As a result, we will no longer require you to obtain eligibility checking details from the parents as you have done in the past.
Each term we will check the list of eligible families with 3 and 4 year olds we have been provided with, against the list of children accessing an early education place in that term. A list of eligible EYPP children will then be sent to each school / childcare
provider via the Bradford Schools Online dropbox. You will automatically receive an email to alert you that the file is there for you to download. This summer term we will be sending the lists out by
Once you receive your list, please follow the steps below:
- Save a copy of the file to your own system as it will automatically delete after 5 days once it has been opened.
- Check that all the children on the file still attend your school / setting.
- Check that all the children eligible for EYPP last term and still at your school / setting are still on the list.
- If any children have left or there are any children missing who were eligible last term, please amend the list (giving children’s names and dates of birth) and return to us using the EYPP Folder in the BSO Postbox (as this is
a secure way of exchanging personal data). We will check your returns and request the Schools Funding Team to make payments accordingly.
If after you receive the list you feel there are eligible children not showing, this may be due to an error in matching the data (depending on the data provided by the parents when applying for the relevant benefit and registering for an early education
place). You can check their eligibility using the on-line checker:
If you do not receive a file this means we have not identified any children eligible in your school / setting, but once again if you do not think this is the case, please send a list of children you think are eligible via EYPP Folder in the BSO Postbox.
You can check your EYPP payments by looking at your payments schedule on BSO.
Please send your returns to us or get in touch with queries by 25 July, and that will enable us to organise payment in September (the Schools Funding Team can't make EYPP payments in August).
