The Jersey Premium is an allocation of additional funding
provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are
vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who
are Looked After Children (i.e. under the care of Children's
Services in Jersey) OR live in a household claiming Income Support
OR live in a 'registered' household that could receive Income
Support. The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate
progress and raise attainment.

School to decide how the Jersey Premium will be used; the Jersey
Premium is paid directly to the School as we are best placed to
assess what additional provision should be made for the individual
pupils within our care. The Head Teacher will work closely with
colleagues and parents to provide that Jersey Premium money is
having a positive impact on children, represents good value for
money and is a good use of resources.
All schools are required to report to CYPES on the amount of
funding received, how this is being used, and the impact of any
In 2018 Victoria College Preparatory School recieved £1920. Due
