The Service Pupil Premium (SPP) is a fund (£335 per eligible child) allocated to schools so that they can offer mainly pastoral support during challenging times and to help mitigate the negative impact on service children of family mobility or parental deployment.  The following students attract this funding:

  1. When one of their parents is serving in the regular armed forces
  2. If they have been registered as a ‘service child’ on a school census since 2016
  3. If one of their parents died whilst serving in the armed forces and the pupil receives a pension under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme or the War Pensions Scheme
