Make sure your Service child’s school gets extra funding

Schools in England which have Service children from Reception to Year 11 on their roll are entitled to an extra £310 per Service child in funding. 

To enable the school to claim Service Pupil Premium (SPP), make sure you have informed your child’s school of their Service status by 21 January 2021 in time for the spring census. 

SPP is money that is paid directly to state schools, free schools and academies across England and is used collectively to support all service children in the school. 

This premium is for children of currently serving Service personnel, children of serving parents who are a member of the full-time reserve service on full commitment and their role is deployable, for those who have had a Service parent who has died in Service and also those who have left including through injury for up to a maximum of six years. 

Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have their own administrations and therefore different arrangements.
