Service Pupil Premium

Service Pupil Premium is allocated for pupils who fall into one of the following categories:

  • Pupils who have a parent who is currently serving in the regular armed forces 

  • Pupils who have been registered as a ‘service child’ in the school census at any point since 2011
  • Pupils who have a parent that died whilst serving in the armed forces and the pupil receives a pension under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme or the War Pensions Scheme
  • Pupils with a parent who is on full commitment as part of the full time reserve service

The purpose of the Service Pupil Premium is:

  • To offer mainly pastoral support during challenging times and to help mitigate the negative impact on service children of family mobility or parental deployment.

  • Mobility is when a service family is posted from one location to another, including overseas and within the UK.

  • Deployment is when a service person is serving away from home for a period of time. This could be a 6 to 9 month tour of duty, a training course or an exercise which could last for a few weeks.
