A 'looked after child' (LAC) is a child who is (a) in the care of a local authority, or (b) being provided with accommodation by a local authority in the exercise of their social services functions (see the definition in Section 22(1) of the Children Act 1989) at the time of making an application to a school.
A child is regarded has having been in state care outside of England if they were in the care of or were accommodated by a public authority, a religious organisation, or any other provider of care whose sole or main purpose is to benefit society.
Previously looked after children (PLAC) are those children who were previously looked after, but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, child arrangements, or special guardianship orders . This includes children who were adopted under the Adoption Act 1976 (see section 12 adoption orders) and children who were adopted under the Adoption and Children’s Act 2002 (see section 46 adoption orders). Child arrangements orders are defined in section 8 of the Children Act 1989, as amended by Section 12 of the Children and Families Act 2014. Child arrangements orders replace residence orders and any residence order in force prior to 22 April 2014 is deemed to be a child arrangements order. Section 14A of the Children Act 1989 defines a ‘special guardianship order’ as an order appointing one or more individuals to be a child’s special guardian (or special guardians).
Children eligible for the Pupil Premium are those in Reception to Year 6 who are, or have ever been, entitled to free school meals (excluding Universal Free School Meals in Reception, Y1 and Y2), based on their family income, prior to the closing date for application for a school place; 31st October in the year prior to entry for places in Year 7 OR prior to the publication of GCSE results for entry into Year 12. See The Admissions Code (2021), Section 1.41.
Parents of children eligible for the Pupil Premium (Y6) at the time of application must have indicated that this is the case directly to The King’s School, prior to, or when applying for a place through their home Local Authority to be considered for priority 2.
The King’s School then requires parents to request that their son’s primary school provides verifiable evidence of Pupil Premium eligibility directly to The King’s School no later than 31st October in the year prior to entry for Year 7.
The school reserves the right to withdraw the offer of a place if the offer has been made on the basis of an incorrect, fraudulent or misleading application.
If you have answered yes to this question, please read the information regarding Pupil Premium below very carefully as evidence needs to be provided by 31st October 2022.
