Pupil Premium Plus – Children Who Are Looked After

Dear Parents and Carers

Re Pupil Premium Plus and additional support

Each November/December we remind parents and guardians that the deadline for the Pupil Premium Plus self-declaration is in early January. If your child was previously in care in England or Wales and is adopted or living with you under a special guardianship order, residence order or child arrangements order, the school can claim £2300 each year to support them.

In order to claim this funding and offer additional support we need to ask that you provide us with information to show that your child is adopted, has a special guardianship order or child arrangement order. You can do this by showing us a copy of an adoption order, special guardianship order, a letter from the local authority/ adoption agency or social worker. You can arrange to do this by:

Making a confidential appointment with Mrs Quayle

or

Email: m.quayle1@tlacademy.org.uk

This information is used by the school to claim funding in the annual School Census in January.

We will also invite carers and adopters to a coffee morning to discuss our thoughts on how we can best support your child. We are keen to work in partnership with you to determine how Pupil Premium Plus can be used and we would like the opportunity to discuss this with you. We aim to publish our policy and procedure after we have consulted with parents and carers.

Kind regards

Mrs Michelle Quayle
