Recovery Premium Funding for Looked After and Previously Looked After Children

Recovery Premium Funding will be made available in academic year 2022/23 to help support the education of some disadvantaged groups of children; this includes looked after and previously looked after children in year groups reception to year 11.

Building on the Pupil Premium Plus, this funding will help schools to deliver evidence-based approaches for supporting disadvantaged pupils.
