Looked After Child
A‘ looked after child’ is a child who is (a) in the care of a local authority, or (b) being provided with accommodation by a local authority in the exercise of their social services function (see definition in section 22(1) of the Children Act 1989). Previously looked after children are children (b) who were looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted or became subject to a child arrangement order or special guardian ship order.
Applications received under the Criterion A must be made by the person with parental responsibility for the child (e.g. the child’s social worker, acting on behalf of the local authority for a looked after child) and will need to be supported by the following official documentation, as applicable:
- Confirmation by the home local authority that the child is looked after or previously looked after or
- Confirmation by the local authority
Pupil Premium are those students who have received funding for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years or who are currently eligible for free school meals.
The Service Premium is designed to support children with parents/carers serving in the regular British armed forces. Students attract the premium if they meet the following criteria: one of their parents/carers is serving in the regular armed forces; one of their parents/carers served in the regular armed forces in the last 5 years or one of their parents/carers died while serving in the armed forces and the student is in receipt of a pension under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS) and the War Pensions Scheme (WPS).
Kendrick School will request evidence of receipt of Pupil Premium or Service Premium from your daughter’s current school. Official documentation will be required to support the application for a ‘looked after’ or previously ‘looked after’ child.
