Currently, children adopted from outside England and Wales do not get pupil premium plus.

The department is aware of this issue and is exploring the possibility of extending pupil premium plus to these children and will be including them in the school census from the 2022/23 academic year. In the meantime, schools should support the needs of all pupils, regardless of whether they are eligible to attract pupil premium plus, as support is not contingent on receipt of this funding.
