The Department for Education (DfE) asked the British Association for Adoption and Fostering (BAAF) to undertake case studies to illustrate the early use of the Pupil Premium for adopted children. The case studies described here aim to promote adopted children’s educational and personal development through appropriate use of the Pupil Premium. Please click here to read the case studies.

The Department for Education is increasingly recognising the long term impact of trauma and loss for children who live in adoptive or special guardianship families. Adopted and permanently placed children may experience a range of difficulties at school, including problems coping with change and transition, relationship difficulties with adults and other children, and difficulties managing their emotions and behaviours. All of this can have an impact on their learning and emotional wellbeing. PAC-UK has a specialist Education Service dedicated to supporting adopted and permanently placed children in schools.
