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