SERVICE PUPIL PREMIUM







































SERVICE PUPIL PREMIUM 2015

This message is for the attention of Regular Forces Service parents based in England.  If your child attends a state school, Academy or Free school in England and has been registered with the school as a Service pupil, the school will be granted a Service Pupil Premium of £300. 

The Service Pupil Premium (SPP) is provided by the Department for Education to enable schools to offer additional, mainly pastoral, support during challenging times, which could include anything from a Service parent being away, being injured on active service to bereavement.  Funds are paid directly to schools; with Head Teachers and school Governors deciding how the funds are used.

Schools with Service children in Reception to Year 11 classes are eligible to receive SPP, but only if your child’s name appears on the school roll as being a Service child.  The annual census takes place on 15 Jan 2015 and children must be registered with the school before this date.  You are encouraged to contact the school and make them aware your child is from a Service family.  This information is not shared with other organisations and is protected on the National Pupil database.

For more information on eligibility, please see the links below:




For any other queries regarding Service children contact the Directorate Children and Young People’s educational advisory arm, Children's Education Advisory Service (CEAS) via the helpline: 01980 618244 or email: enquiries@ceas.uk.com.

PS4 WELFARE IHUB SURVEY

PS4 Welfare IHub Survey


PS4 would like to hear the views of Service Personnel, Welfare Staff and Families to ensure that they create a useful and widely used welfare information portal.

It is appreciated that filling out surveys can be onerous but it will really help to develop a worthwhile and functional product.

Concept:

The aim of the iHUB is to ensure the timely and effective delivery of welfare information in support of Regular and Reserve Service Personnel, their families, chain of command and the wider community (general public).

The key deliverable is the empowerment of the service person and their families to better understand, and access, the full range of welfare support available to them from their own homes to aid in greater independence and resilience.

The project is currently in the scoping phase and the aspiration (if successful) is to deliver within the next 2 years.

Project Aspirations:

It will be a single consolidated focus for welfare information that is easily accessible via the internet, at a time and place convenient to the service personnel and their families.
It will be accessible via mobile phone / UAD and other IT equipment with modern branding and design.

It will be interactive using video and other content (eg Podcasts, interactive multi media), that provide information and advice on an array of welfare issues.

There will be the facility to be involved in online discussion groups with other users or email questions directly where necessary, for further signposting.

It will signpost to other websites such as HiVES and 3rd Sector Charities.

The IHUB will provide other benefits, such as improved quality and reliability of welfare information, assistance to Welfare Officers, increase corporate information and increased positive recruiting influence.

The iHUB will not deal with casework, this will still be done by the Chain of Command and welfare staff.

Samantha Cameron, Founding Patron of the military charity Tickets For Troops, has hosted a reception for the charity at No.10 Downing Street to mark the fifth anniversary of the charity. (Tuesday December 2nd)

Over the last five years, the military charity (www.ticketsfortroops.org.uk) has gone from strength to strength offering hundreds of thousands of free tickets to events all over the UK to serving members of the Armed Forces and for those who have been medically discharged since 2001.

Tickets For Troops was set up in 2009 to recognise and reward the servicemen and women who put their lives on the line for Britain and Mrs Cameron has been a consistent supporter of the charity and attended various events.

The charity offers members of the Armed Forces tickets to events which they can share with their families as an acknowledgement of the work they do and on behalf of the hundreds of generous donors who have given FREE tickets to the charity.

Tickets For Troops has allocated 650,000 tickets to our nation’s heroes demonstrating the enormous support and respect our UK sports, music, theatre and entertainment industries have for our military men and women.

The charity has over 140,000 military members registered and troops have been given access to tickets for many prestigious events including, The London Olympics and Paralympics, The BRIT Awards, the Isle of Wight Festival, Formula One British Grand Prix, the FA Cup, Les Misérables, The Ideal Home Show, Premier League Football, the Aviva rugby Premiership, The British Summer Time Hyde Park series. The Calling Festival, Coldwell Boxing and darts and many others.

Samantha Cameron, Patron of Tickets For Troops said “It is a real pleasure to host Tickets For Troops’ 5th Anniversary at Downing Street. It is so important to give something back to the amazing men and women who give so much to keep our country safe. Tickets for Troops have done an amazing job in allocating 650,000 tickets, and it is wonderful to see the wide range of industries who are supporting our servicemen and women.”
