Jersey Premium is a targeted funding programme which aims to make sure all children get the very best from their education. The funding is paid directly to the school or college as we are best placed to assess what interventions would be appropriate to enhance the learning experience for the eligible pupils within our care.
Eligibility for Jersey Premium
There are three eligibility criteria:
1. all children who are looked after or children, who have previously been looked after
2.-children from households which have recently claimed Income Support
3. children from households with 'Registered' status that would qualify them to claim Income Support if they had lived in Jersey for five years.
