Children are registered as being service children on the January School Census. In January 2010 there were 38,170 pupils registered at nursery, state-funded primary, state-funded secondary and special schools as service children and in January 2011 there were 48,070. This is the total number of pupils registered and will include year groups not eligible for the service child premium.
