Service Pupil Premium Strategy
The Service Pupil Premium (SPP) is provided by the Department for Education (DfE) to enable schools to offer additional, mainly pastoral support during challenging times; this could include anything from a Service parent being away, being injured on active service, to bereavement. We have a small, yet significant group of service pupils in school. The strategy below shows how we spend the additional funding to support our service pupils and their families.
Military Kids Club
We have a small but significant group of pupils with families serving in the armed forces. Since 2019, Mrs Jones and Mrs Vincent have been co-ordinating pastoral support for pupils and their families through the Military Kids Club (both of whom have husbands currently serving in the armed forces). In July 2021, we were awarded a £500 grant from the Festival of Friends project for our proposal to build a memorial garden. This is testament to all of the hard work that Mrs Jones and Mrs Vincent have undertaken. We were the only school outside of a military base to be awarded a prize.
