Service Pupil Premium & 30-hours free childcare

The Royal Navy has a range of benefits for serving personnel with children:

Service Pupil Premium

Service parents with children in reception class to year 11 at state schools, free schools and academies in England are reminded to make schools aware of their Service status. Only children recorded as Service children on a Spring census (run in January each year) since 2015 will qualify. Schools record Service children by ticking the Service pupil flag and will then receive £300.00 per Service child as part of their usual funding allocations from the Department of Education. Children have to be recorded ahead of the 16 January 2020 deadline.

30 hours free childcare

The HMRC technical team have provided an email address which parents can use if they are having issues applying for their online code; please email: childcareservice.localgov@hmrc.gov.uk. HMRC are able to issue manual codes if the online application fails.
