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. This could include anything from a Service parent being away, being injured on active service to bereavement.
At Henry Cort we invest this money into the student support teams. We also employ a Premium Champion who leads various outreach projects throughout the year, which includes SPP students, and who liaises with the Fareham Service Family Support network.
Schools with Service children 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 in January 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.
