Service Club

Service Families

 The Service Pupil Premium (SPP) is provided by the Department for Education to enable schools to offer additional, mainly pastoral, support during challenging times. This could include anything from a Service parent being away, being injured on active service to bereavement. 

At Rowner we invest this money into our Service Club. 

Schools with Service children are eligible to receive SPP, but only if the child’s name appears on the school roll as being a Service child. 

Service parents are encouraged to contact us to make sure we are aware their children are from a Service family so that we can access the SSP. 

For more information on eligibility, please see the link below:

Our Service Club meet fortnightly on a Thursday after school and is led by Ms Woodford, Miss Clements (Year 2 teacher) and Mrs Davis (Year R TA). We offer a safe space to talk, complete an activity, such as our Remembrance Day poppy display, and most importantly have fun! 

A letter will be sent to all Year 1 and 2 service families at the beginning of term about your children joining our service club. Year R children are then invited to join in the summer term. 

 Dates: 

  • Thurs 15th September 
  • Thurs 29th September 
  • Thursday 13th October 
  • Thurs 10th November 
  • Thurs 24th November
