Information for Parents/Carers
As the Designated Person with responsibility for promoting the educational outcomes for Previously Looked After Children, I am writing with further information. If this is relevant to your family, please read on.
Pupil Premium Plus
If your child was previously looked after by a local authority in England or Wales immediately before being adopted, subject to a special guardianship order, a child arrangement order or residence order, the school can claim additional monies (£2300) each year via Pupil Premium Plus funding to support the educational needs of your child.
Declaration is on a voluntary basis. If you would like us to claim for your child, you must inform us before Thursday 17th January 2019. We will need to see a copy of the court order or a letter from the local authority that placed the child with you. We will then update our annual census.
Please be aware that this information must be declared each time your child starts a new school. Therefore, if this applies to your child, and it is your child’s first year with us, we would appreciate it if you could make contact with us. We are happy to discuss the use of Pupil Premium with you. You can also view our Pupil Premium policy and spending on our school website:
The information you provide will be treated as confidential.
We understand that a young person’s early experiences may have a lasting impact and that every child is unique. We would like to work in partnership with families to ensure that each child’s educational experience is positive and that they achieve the very best that they are able to. With this in mind, I would like to encourage you to make contact with me.
If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss further.
Mr S Howell
