Service Pupil Premium is extra funding for schools to support children and young people with parents in the armed forces.
Pupils attract the SPP if they meet one of the following criteria:
- one of their parents is serving in the regular armed forces (including pupils with a parent who is on full commitment as part of the full time reserve)
- 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
- they have been registered as a ‘service child’ on the January school census at any point since 2016.
