Service Families

Supporting children from Services families

Within school, members of the staff have allocated time to support these children throughout the week. This is done through a variety of ways and can be directed by the child as to what would best suit their needs.

Children from Service families have enjoyed:

-          Making clay

-          Drawing and painting pictures

-          Writing letters and stories

-          Playing games

-          Writing news reports

When family members have been deployed away from the family home, children can also spend their one to one session sending e-mails and photos to keep parents informed. There are also toy animals that could be taken by both a child and a parent on deployment too.

There is also the opportunity for Year 5 and 6 children to attend a Forces Day in April, held each year in Winchester, which provides them with the opportunity to take part in games and activities with children from different schools.
