Deadline approaching for Pupil Premium 2016

4 November 2015

Children in state-funded education in England who were adopted from care in England and Wales, or who left care under a Special Guardianship Order or Child Arrangements Order / Residence Order are eligible for pupil premium funding.  To enable your child’s school to claim the pupil premium, you will need to inform the school and provide supporting evidence, for example, the original Adoption (Court) Order.  You will need to self-declare before 21 January 2016 in order to  trigger the payment of the pupil premium to the school / education provider from April 2016.

If you informed the school of your child’s adopted status for the January 2015 School Census, it should not be necessary to provide evidence again.  It may, however, be advisable to double check with the school before 21 January.

NB. If your child has moved schools, you need to provide evidence again as information is not transferable from one school to another.
