UPDATE: Service Pupil Premium Includes Parents that have Divorced Since 2011

Since April 2013, provision has been made for pupils that were eligible for the Service Pupil Premium since 2011, to continue to be eligible if their parents are no longer member of the Armed Forces, have died in Service or have divorced.

For families that have divorced, in practise this means that the divorce will have to have taken place since the introduction of the Premium in 2011 and the child must have been eligible for Premium in 2011.

In the 2014 to 2015 financial year, the Premium will be set at £300 per Service child. The closing date for informing schools that child(ren) are eligible to claim the Service Pupil Premium is 16 January.
