 Pupil Premium for Adopted Children (From April 2014)

Was your adopted child formerly a ‘looked after child’ and adopted on or after 30 December 2005?

 From April 2014, schools in England can receive the Pupil Premium for children adopted from care, or who left under a Special Guardianship Order on or after 30 December 2005.  Schools can also claim the Pupil Premium for children who left care under a Residence Order on or after 14 October 1991.

 The Pupil Premium is to help schools raise the attainment of disadvantages pupils and close the gap with their peers.  It is paid to schools in respect of disadvantaged pupils in Reception to Year 11.  The Government has extended the coverage of the Pupil Premium in recognition of the traumatic experiences many adopted children have endured in their early lives and a realisation that their needs do not change overnight.

 To enable your child’s school to claim the Pupil Premium, you will need to inform the school about your child and provide supporting evidence, for example, show the school a photocopy of the original Adoption (Court) Order with sensitive information concealed, e.g. the names of the birth parents.  You will need to self-declare for us to complete the annual School Census.  This will then trigger the payment of the Pupil Premium to the school.
