The Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium Plus for looked after children is currently £1900. Pupil Premium Plus must be managed by the Virtual School Head to improve the attainment and progress of looked after children.

The Virtual School Head, working with education settings, should implement pupil premium plus arrangements for looked after children in accordance with the latest DfE Conditions of Grant and any supplementary departmental advice issued, such as the document relating more specifically to the Virtual School Head’s responsibilities.

There are many best practice reports available including:

The Education Endowment Foundation Toolkit is also very useful in helping to identify strategies that are most effective.
