Parents/Carers of fostered & adopted children, or those children under Special Guardianship.
Have you adopted a child, or are looking after a child of another family member? Maybe you care for a child in Special Guardianship or perhaps you are undertaking foster care long/short term? If you find yourself in any of these unique and special circumstances then this information is specifically designed to support you and your family.
At Aire View Infant School we are totally committed to supporting all of our families. We are incredibly proud of all our children and know that many of them start their young lives with additional challenges. We also know we have some amazing parents who dedicate their lives to children from all backgrounds. We acknowledge that if you have adopted a child or are looking after a child in short or long term care arrangement then you may have specific needs with their education and / or emotional support.
Did you know that following changes in education legislation as a looked after child/children or 'Post looked after' for adopted children they now have priority in school choices? This means when making applications for Nursery, Reception and Secondary Schools your child will be prioritised over other children in recognition that sometimes they have had a difficult start in life and they may need some additional support. At Aire View Infant School we can support you with any school applications and support you through this sometimes complicated process. We know how important it is for families to know what support they can get.
Did you also know that Adopted children and those in special care arrangements receive additional funding in school for the school to spend on supporting the children? This may be used to employ additional adults, support with school trips, uniform or additional educational resources. This additional money is called 'Pupil Premium Plus'. You can see how we spend all our other Pupil Premium Income by looking on the parent’s page of the website.
