What is the aim or purpose of the Premium for service children?
This premium has been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. This service premium is designed to address the additional needs relating to service children’s emotional and social well-being, and the effects of separation from a serving parent deployed on operations. In the past, support often had to be accommodated from within their existing budgets. Schools will be able to use the Service Premium to fund this support, if they feel that is appropriate.
The Service Pupil Premium is currently £300.00 per service, per pupil.
If you have any questions, please contact the school on 020 8780 1244 and speak to our Finance team or send them an email on firstname.lastname@example.org. They will be able to offer advice and guidance. Alternatively you can visit http://www.education.gov.uk/schools/pupilsupport/premium
