This was introduced in 2012 for children in full time education State Schools but only for those whose parent was in receipt of either the War Widows' Pension or Armed Forces Compensation.
The Armed Forces Covenant Group lobbied for change and the Pupil Premium rule has been changed to include qualifying children of all death in service personnel. It has also been extended to include the children of divorced service personnel.
If you would like further details please contact your child's school.
