I am a co-opted governor with one child who previously attended Marlborough school. I have been a governor since 2022 and am a member of the resources committee.
I am currently the Service Pupil Premium governor, holding the federation to account on how the extra funding for the children of Service Personnel is spent. For more information visit Service Pupil Premium: what you need to know - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk).
Did you know: The premium was extended , such that any pupil in reception to year 11, who has been flagged as a Service child in the last six years, will continue to receive the premium. Ex-Service personnel should tell the school if they left the armed forces within the last six years. Under the DfE’s ever measure, schools will continue to receive SPP for up to six years for children whose parent(s) left the armed forces, provided the children were recorded as Service children in a school census (prior to their parent(s) leaving the forces).
