What is the Service Pupil Premium (SPP)?

At AFF we receive a lot of questions about SPP and we are conscious that many people don’t really know how this money is, or could be spent to benefit our children as well as knowing who to ask about it and what we can ask from our schools. Here is a handy list to remind you what SPP is all about. Read more

Service Pupil Premium for the early years: have your say

Currently there is no specific funding for early years children. This is something that AFF is monitoring and gathering evidence about.

To have your say on this, please email your experiences and let us know why you think Service children under five need this funding to support the mobility and separation in their lives. 

You can email the Education and Childcare Specialist, Lucy Scott, at ec@aff.org.uk

House of Commons Library Briefing Paper

The House of Commons has produced a Library Briefing Paper on the Pupil Premium, including the Service Pupil Premium. 

So, what is a Library Briefing Paper? The following quote is from the paper itself. It states: ‘The House of Commons Library research service provides MPs and their staff with the impartial briefing and evidence base they need to do their work in scrutinising government, proposing legislation and supporting constituents.’

This particular one explains the history of the Service Pupil Premium, the differences between it and the Pupil Premium, and its purpose. There is also a section on school admissions for pupils eligible for the Service Pupil Premium.
