Housing - JSHAO Briefings

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:

CUSTOMER MESSAGE - Stay secure - important message about access to Service homes
There have been some recent reports of incidents where people have tried to gain unauthorised access to Service Family Accommodation.

We ask that all Service families remain vigilant when receiving unexpected visits and ask to see identification.  If you receive an unexpected request to undertake work and wish to check credentials please call the CarillionAmey Helpdesk on 0800 707 6000.  If you have any concerns about your security please contact the Police or your local security section/guardroom immediately.  Any additional information regarding Description of Callers and Vehicle Details may assist in any subsequent investigation.

In addition, if you see any suspicious activity in your area, including people or vehicles, please take the details and pass them to the Police or security section.  Do not potentially put yourself in danger by confronting anyone.
