Jersey Premium is a targeted funding programme for schools which has been recently introduced to help all children get the very best from their education. The funding is designed to ensure that all pupils receive high-quality teaching based on a detailed understanding of their needs or barriers to learning. There are 3 groups of children eligible for Jersey Premium;
· Children who live in a household receiving Income Support
· Children who live in a ‘Registered’ household that could receive Income Support (i.e. it meets the requirements of the Social Security Department) but have not yet lived in Jersey for five years or more
· Looked After Children (i.e. who are under the care of Social Services)
