Jersey Premium Eligibility
1. Pupils who have ever been Looked After Children (LAC)
Looked After Children are known to us as part of the normal administration of schools and will automatically be eligible. Pupils who have been adopted or are no longer looked after are also eligible but the parent, guardian or carer has to declare this to the school.
2. Pupils from households which have recently claimed Income Support
Customer and Local Services who manage Income Support work closely with Education to identify children who are eligible for Jersey Premium. Parents will receive a letter informing them if their child is eligible. If you do not want your child to benefit from Jersey Premium, you need to inform us in writing by the deadline provided in the letter. Once the deadline has passed we will share the names of the eligible pupils with schools.
3. Pupils from households with 'Registered' status that would qualify to claim Income Support if they had lived in Jersey for five years
If you think your family would qualify for Income Support if you had lived in the Island for five years, you can find out if your child is eligible for Jersey Premium by completing the form below.
