Children adopted from care and the pupil premium: template letter

A template local authorities can use to tell alternative education providers how to claim the pupil premium for children adopted from care.



This template letter is for local authorities to use when collecting data for the alternative provision (AP) census.

The letter explains what data AP providers must submit to local authorities regarding children:

  • adopted from local-authority care
  • looked after by a special guardianship or care arrangement order

AP settings provide education for children who can’t attend a mainstream school.
