From April 2014, schools in England can receive the Pupil Premium for children adopted from care, or who left care 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 disadvantaged pupils and close the gap with their peers. The Government has extended the coverage of the Pupil Premium in recognition of the difficulties many adopted children have faced in their early lives and a realisation that they may have specific needs.

To enable your child’s school to claim the Pupil Premium, you will need to inform us about your child and provide supporting evidence of the adoption. Please email finance@catmosecollege.com

Please be assured that this information will be treated in the strictest confidence and that should the application be successful, we will discuss with you how it will be managed.
