Children in Public Care

Children in Public Care / Previously Looked After Children

The school can receive additional funding to support children in public care (subject to care orders or accommodated by a local authority) and ‘previously looked after’ children.

A ‘looked after child’ is a child who is (a) in the care of the local authority, or (b) being provided with accommodation by a local authority under Section 22(1) of the Children Act 1989.

A ‘previously looked after child’ is a child who was looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted; or became subject to a residence order under the terms of the Children Act 1989 (Section 8); or special guardianship order (Section 14A) of the Children Act 1989. This applies where the child was adopted (or became subject to residence or special guardianship order) immediately following having been looked after.
