Service personnel with children in state schools in England only have until 19 January 2017 to notify schools of their children's eligibility for the Service Pupil Premium (SPP). This is the date of the annual schools census that determines future funding for schools.

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 £300 per service child who meets the eligibility criteria.
