At Meadows, we are proud to use the income from Pupil Premium to endeavour to ensure any child who meets the criteria for the funding allocated to the school is given targeted and strategic support to learn as effectively as possible. Pupil Premium at Meadows is led by Mrs Ann Cox. Mrs Cox ensures the very best spending of the Pupil Premium fund, in order to best champion the life opportunities of those entitled to the fund. Mrs Cox is happy to support any parent, carer, colleague or other agency with any questions they may have regarding Pupil Premium in our school.

Pupil Premium Entitlement:

What are the qualifying benefits to apply for Service Pupil Premium funding?

The Department for Education (DfE) introduced the Service pupil premium (SPP) in April 2011 in recognition of the specific challenges children from service families face and as part of the commitment to delivering the armed forces covenant.

State schools, academies and free schools in England, which have children of service families in school years reception to year 11, can receive the SPP funding. It is designed to assist the school in providing the additional support that these children may need and is currently worth £310 per service child who meets the eligibility criteria.

Pupils attract 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 service)
  • they have been registered as a ‘service child’ on a school census since 2016, see note on the DfE’s ever 6 service child measure
  • 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

Children have to be identified as service children ahead of the autumn school census deadline. Service parents need to make the school aware of their status by talking to our school office team.
