Smithdon High School

Funding For Adopting Parents

Funding for children adopted from care.

The Pupil Premium is to help schools raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap with their peers. The school receives funding in respect of disadvantaged pupils in Years 7 to 11.  The Government has extended the coverage of the Pupil Premium in recognition of the traumatic experiences many adopted children have endured in their early lives and a realisation that their needs do not change over night.

To enable our school to claim the Pupil Premium, you will need to inform the school about your child and provide supporting evidence of the adoption.  This will then trigger the payment of the Pupil Premium to the school from April 2014.

Please contact the school for further information.

All declarations and information received will be treated in the strictest of confidence.

We thank you in anticipation for helping us maximise the funding available.
