Jersey Premium Fact Sheet
Jersey Premium Eligibility
Government of Jersey fee-paying and non-fee-paying schools and colleges receive extra funding on a per pupil basis as follows:
1. Pupils who are or have ever been Children Looked After
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 relevant form below.
4. Service Jersey Premium
Pupils who have a parent or guardian serving in the Jersey Field Squadron can apply for Service Jersey Premium. This includes parents or guardians on overseas deployment, tactical operations, exercise and training. Applications can be made via the Jersey Field Squadron.
