Pupil Premium Plus

​The purpose of the Pupil Premium Plus is to support children from disadvantaged backgrounds (including being looked after) to raise attainment and address underlying inequalities.

Who is entitled to the Pupil Premium Plus?

The Pupil Premium Plus is for children and young people in care who are at school in years reception to year 11.

How will the Pupil Premium Plus be paid?

This money comes into the local authority. The Virtual School then pay it to any school or setting where a looked after child is on roll and there is a good quality Personal Education Plan in place. Schools and settings should use the ePEP system to record their Pupil Premium Plus spend and its impact. The below guidance shows how to complete this in the relevant section of the PEP:

It is paid in three instalments over the academic year as soon as the child or young person enters care.

How should the money be spent?

The Department for Education (DfE) has directed that it is for schools to decide how the premium is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

Monitoring of how our looked after children benefit from this funding will be through the Personal Education Plan (PEP) meetings.

Pupil Premium Plus policy

As there have been significant national changes in the arrangements for the Pupil Premium Plus, the council has developed a policy informed by DfE guidance:
