Pupil Premium Plus
Extra support in school - new funding for adopted children
 

 
     
  From April 2014, schools in England can receive additional funding through the Pupil Premium Plus for children adopted from care.  
     
  In order for schools to receive funding from April 2014, children will need to be recorded as eligible on the School Census by Thursday 16 January 2014. 
 
     
  Schools will not necessarily be aware that they have adopted children and post-LAC children enrolled and so we would encourage parents and guardians to come forward, rather than relying on the school to approach them.
 
     
  Pupil Premium funding is additional money given to schools in England to raise the attainment of eligible pupils and narrow the gap between their attainment and their peers.
 
     
  More information on who is eligible and how to self declare is available through the link below. 
 
     
  For advice and guidance on support for eligible children in school you can also contact the Adoption UK Helpline on 0844 848 7900 Monday - Friday 10am to 4pm.

  Extra support in school - new funding for adopted children
 
     
  Adopted children will have experienced loss and many of them will have had traumatic experiences in their early lives. 
 
     
  Teachers and schools have a vital role to play in helping these children emotionally, socially and educationally by providing support, to raise their attainment and address their wider needs.
 
     
  If a child is registered as adopted or post-LAC in the January School Census, their school will receive a Pupil Premium of £1,900 to provide additional help in the following financial year - eg April 2014 - March 2015.
