Time: - | Venue:

Sorry for the delay – lists of children we think are eligible for EYPP in the autumn term should be in your dropbox from yesterday (Monday 20 November).

Please check your list and if it is correct, there is no need to do anything else and you will be paid accordingly in the Schools Funding Team advance in December.

If you think any amendments are needed, please contact me (contact details below) as soon as possible before 7 December so that we can get the information to the Schools Funding Team in time.

Please see below for more details on how the system works nowadays:

We are pleased to announce that we are now able to access the list of families eligible for the Early Years Pupil Premium via up-to-date information from our colleagues in the Revenues and Benefits Team.

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 term we will be sending the lists out by Monday 20 November.

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 five 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 feel are eligible via EYPP Folder in the BSO Postbox.
    You can check your EYPP payments by looking at your payments schedule on BSO.

If you have any questions / require any further information regarding EYPP payments, please contact adrian.tolley@bradford.gov.uk
