Win up to £2,500 for your school in The Cumbria Pupil Premium Plus Awards

How to enter:

Submit a best practice case study (1000 words maximum) on the use of Pupil Premium Plus (PP+) for children or young people who are looked after (not previously looked after) and be in with a chance of winning up to £ 2,500 for your school.

In your entry, please detail:

  • the context of your school
  • clear examples of how you're using PP+
  • how your school has supported the progress of the child/ren
  • what the impact has been

Your entry can be a case study of an individual child or on the culture, ethos or resources of school as a whole (e.g. training or staffing in relation to the needs of a child looked after). Do not use names or give any other information which may makes it possible to identify the child or other individuals involved. 

In submitting the case study you agree for the Virtual School to share the case study as an example of good practice.
