Adopted Children

The Children and Social Worker Bill has achieved Royal Assent and there will be implications for Designated Teachers.  The Act has not become law and we await clarity regarding the finer details. We advise that DT plan to be the point of contact for Adoptive Children.  There is no legal requirement for Adoptive Children to have specific targets or meetings as yet however, we attach a template which you may wish to use.  The Education Excellence Plan (EEP) has been created through partnership working with Adoptive Parents, Staff of Orleans Primary School and the Virtual School.

Pupil Premium for Adoptive children is delegated from the DfE to Headteachers in host schools to allocate according to identified pupil needs. As with all PPG Headteachers are responsible for evaluating the impact of spending.

This fund does not come into the Virtual School and, unlike Pupil Premium Plus for CLA, is not managed by the Virtual School Headteacher.  Please find our Pupil Premium for Adoptive Children Policy attached.
