Timpson announces increase to the pupil premium

Edward Timpson has announced that the new ‘pupil premium plus’ will see funding to support children in care at school increase by £1,000 per pupil. Children will attract the pupil premium as soon as they enter care which brings the total to approximately 50,000. Children in care have previously attracted pupil premium funding at the same rate as children from low-income families, but in future they will attract a higher rate of funding - the pupil premium plus. Children adopted from care and those who leave care under a special guardianship order or residence order will also attract the pupil premium plus.

Timpson’s announcement also includes plans to extend the role of the virtual school head to work with schools to manage the pupil premium plus. children adopted from care and those who leave care under a special guardianship order or residence order will also attract the pupil premium plus.
