    We are currently looking into EYPP at our setting, it would be our first year having it. I was wondering would EAL students be entitled to it? Or is there funding we can get for them. We are a very small Pre-School so funds are limited sometimes but would really like to get a Talking PENpal for them along with other resources.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Parents have to meet certain criteria to get EYPP, typically they would be receiving certain benefit, are looked after, or there's a couple of other small categories. Parents apply, although many LA s have an automatic checking system once you get details such as NI number when they start.

    So your EAL children would only be eligible if they meet the criteria.

    It's worth getting whatever info your LA has to share with your parents as part of their start up pack as you may have entitled families who don't know they are.

    Find out a bit more through the funding document. You need to scroll down towards the end for the criteria
