*’Looked after’ means all those currently in the care of a Local Authority or accommodated by a Local  Authority under the terms of the Children Act 1989 and children who were previously in the care of or Accommodated by a
Local Authority but immediately after being looked after, became subject to an adoption, a child arrangements order or special guardianship order.

**The sibling connection, as well as brother and sister will include half-siblings, adopted children, step-siblings or a child of the parent/carers address. Children who are brought together as a family by a same sex civil partnership and who are living at the same address, are also considered to be siblings.
