This is because we know that this is a good indicator of which pupils do not go on to achieve their full potential.</p><p>We currently have no plans to expand the eligibility of the pupil premium to young carers.</p><p>We recognise that young carers face particular challenges. With this in mind, we give school leaders freedom to use their pupil premium grant in any way they wish to meet the needs of their pupils. This means that they can use their share of the £2.4 billion pupil premium to support young carers in their school. Research with young carers aged 14 to 16 suggests that around 60% already attract the pupil premium through their eligibility for FSM.</p><p>In addition, the government’s Carers Action Plan, published in June this year, sets out a range of government commitments to support young carers including improving identification, educational opportunities and access to support services.</p><p> </p>

However, financial need will vary significantly from family to family.</p><p>The department keeps under review the use of the 16-19 bursary fund to inform our understanding of whether it is providing effective support to our most economically disadvantaged students.</p><p>The defined vulnerable groups eligible for particular support from the 16-19 Bursary Fund are groups that generally do not receive financial support from their families. Young carers can receive help from the discretionary element of the 16-19 bursary fund, which is made available to education and training institutions. It is their role to determine which young people need bursaries and the level of financial support required to enable these students to participate.</p><p>Young carers are able to discuss their particular needs with their school or college, which can then provide appropriate, individualised support. Government guidance for those institutions is very clear about the need to encourage young carers to apply for the bursary fund, reassuring them about confidentiality, and to considering whether they need extra help because of their caring responsibilities.</p><p> </p>
