Your school will receive £2,410 for each pupil in reception to year 11 who is recorded on the October 2021 census as no longer looked after by a local authority (LA) in England and Wales because of:
- A special guardianship order
- A child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order)
These pupils are referred to as previously looked-after children (post-LAC). The funding (together with funding for looked-after children) is referred to as 'pupil premium plus' funding.
In pupil referral units, eligibility is based on the January 2022 census.
This is set out in the 2022-23 pupil premium conditions of grant.
Some adopted pupils may not count
