star this property answer text <p>The Covenant’s principles were enshrined in law in the Armed Forces Act 2011. This Government has demonstrated its commitment to upholding these principles, which is evident in the work reported in each of the four annual reports laid in the House. We will continue to report progress to Parliament. Next month’s Annual Report will detail the considerable progress made across government and with wider public, private and third sectors, including in the key areas of education, healthcare, accommodation and access to commercial services.</p><p> </p><p>Every Local Authority in mainland Great Britain and two in Northern Ireland have signed a Community Covenant. We are working with them to help them deliver the support they have promised to the Armed Forces community, with good work in many areas including housing, education, health and social care.</p><p> </p><p>Together we have taken a number of steps forward in this area, such as allocating funding from a £20 million budget to improve childcare facilities for Service families at 40 locations in the UK and Cyprus. In order to help Service children through local schools’ admissions processes, we have changed the Schools Admission Code in England to give them priority by allowing Service families to apply for and be allocated a place before they move into an area.</p><p> </p><p>This year approximately £21 million was allocated in Service Pupil Premium payments for the pastoral needs of almost 70,000 Service pupils in state schools in England. In 2015, £6 million in grants was given to 154 applicants for Education Support Funding, to help UK state schools mitigate issues caused by exceptional mobility and deployment.</p><p> </p><p>Furthermore, we have worked closely with the Department for Communities and Local Government and Devolved Administrations to ensure that Service personnel do not experience any disadvantage as a result of their military service when applying for social housing.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Within the United Kingdom childcare is a devolved responsibility, and the statutory entitlement to free childcare for UK residents (including Service personnel and their dependants) may vary depending on where they are stationed within the UK.</p><p> </p><p>All Service personnel and their dependants are currently able to access the Ministry of Defence (MOD) Childcare Voucher Scheme which enables its recipients to make a dual couple saving of up to £1,866 per year. When this scheme closes to new members in October 2018, those Service personnel wishing to benefit from Income Tax and NI savings (who were not claiming before October 2018) will be eligible to join the new Government Tax Free Childcare Scheme.</p><p> </p><p>In addition to the universal entitlement to 15 hours of free early education and childcare for children from the term after their third birthday, some English local authorities offer free hours of Ofsted registered childcare targeted to Service personnel with children aged two.</p><p> </p><p>A significant number of nurseries are accommodated on the Defence estate at military bases aimed principally at ensuring nursery provision for Service personnel based at the location concerned. Such nurseries are not operated by Defence but are provided so that personnel have provision close to their place of work and close to their homes when accommodated in Service Families Accommodation. The provision may offer an array of benefits to Service personnel ranging from priority placement to preferential rates.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>In those overseas locations where Service personnel, entitled civilians and their dependants have no statutory entitlement to access host nation provision, the MOD has committed to mirror as far as is reasonably practicable the statutory provision that would have been available in England. Where MOD-provided overseas childcare facilities have sufficient capacity, the 15 hours (universal) and 30 hours entitlement (for eligible working parents) for three and four-year old children will be provided free of charge. In overseas locations where there are no MOD-provided childcare facilities, or such facilities lack sufficient capacity, the additional entitlement will be provided through the MOD Overseas Nursery Allowance.</p><p> </p>
