Service Pupil Premium
The Department for Education (DfE) introduced the Service pupil premium (SPP) in April 2011 in recognition of the specific challenges children from service families face and as part of the commitment to delivering the armed forces covenant.
State schools, academies and free schools in England, which have children of service families in school years reception to year 11, can receive the SPP funding. It is designed to assist the school in providing the additional support that these children may need and is currently worth £310 per service child (£320 for 2022-2023) who meets the eligibility criteria.
Pupils attract SPP if they meet one of the following criteria:
Children have to be flagged as service children ahead of the autumn school census deadline. Service parents need to make the school aware of their status by talking to the head teacher or school admin staff.
If your child has a parent who is serving in the HM Forces please contact Mrs Venner on 01723 582194.
