Service Pupil Premium Eligibility
With the deadline for registering for the Service Pupil Premium (SPP) drawing nearer - 16th January 2020, please ensure that you meet the eligibility criteria before registering with your child's school.
Children of regular Service personnel (PStat Cat 1 and 2 only) who have been recorded as Service children on any January census since 2015 in state schools, free schools and academies in England in years reception to year 11 are eligible for SPP.
Schools can claim SPP for children of regular Service Personnel, for those who have had a Service parent who has died in Service as well as those who have left including through injury for up to a maximum of six years or up to the end of year 11 (whichever comes first).
If a child is not recorded as a Service child whilst the parent is serving, and the Service person has left the Services, schools will not be able to claim SPP.
If a child is home educated, parents agree to take on the financial responsibility and therefore are not eligible for SPP.
