Service Families

Service Families

The Department for Education introduced the Service Pupil Premium in April 2011 in recognition of the specific challenges children from service families face.

Schools which have service children can receive additional funding to help support them, particularly at times of mobility or deployment.

At Northern Schools one of the ways in which we use this funding is to provide emotional literacy support (ELSA) for individuals and groups of children, and a special ‘Forces Club’.

If you believe that you qualify as a ‘service family’, and we may not be aware, please let the school office know as this additional funding really does make a difference to our children.
