2 H ISTORICAL S ITUATION IN K ENT Children in Care have been able to access an Achievement Improvement Fund -AIF. This money is needs driven and is there to enhance the education of children in care. It should not be used for anything which would normally be provided by the school. Another payment specifically for Children in Care has been Pupil Premium. This payment has previously been made direct to schools, and was £900 in 2013/2014. It was only for children who had been in care for 6 months or more. Schools were free to spend this money to provide interventions to close the attainment gap. 2

3 P UPIL P REMIUM P LUS - PP+ Children are now eligible as soon as they enter care Virtual School Headteachers are directly responsible for allocation of funds The money will be allocated on a needs basis. The grant must be used to improve attainment and close the attainment gap. Targets and interventions should link into high quality PEPs. 3

4 C LOSING THE A TTAINMENT G AP Not all Children in Care require the same level of support and intervention to achieve their full potential. In larger schools children might benefit from group work or other interventions for more than one child. It is suggested that DTs work with School bursars or business managers where a larger sum of money is being requested. 4

5 M ANAGEMENT AND A CCOUNTABILITY The VSK Headteacher has responsibility to ensure that Pupil Premium Plus is used in-line with the conditions of grant 2014/2015 and KCC Virtual School Policy Statement. The VSK Assistant Heads will be responsible for initial agreement of the spending plan and subsequent monitoring of the spending plan. The Designated Teacher is accountable via the PEP meeting for monitoring and measuring the impact of the actions and interventions agreed 5
