Service Pupil Premium
The Service Pupil Premium (SPP) is provided by the Department for Education to enable schools to offer additional, mainly pastoral, support during challenging times, which could include anything from a Service parent being away, being injured on active service to bereavement. Funds are paid
directly to schools; with headteachers and school governors deciding how the funds are used.
Schools with Service children in Reception to Year 11 classes are eligible to receive SPP, but only if the child's name appears on the school roll as being a Service child. The annual census takes place on 19 January 2017 and children must be registered with the school before this date.
Service parents have been encouraged to contact their children's schools to make them aware their children are from a Service family.
