Schools are aware of the unique lifestyle of services families and are briefed regarding the cycle of deployment.

How schools can help

School staff understand the concerns of Services children and will help and support them to settle into their new school, make new friends and, in some cases, help them adapt to a different curriculum or even a new language.

Schools who have Services children enrolled may be entitled to receive a small amount of additional funding.

It is therefore helpful for you to inform the school if you are a member of the Armed Forces, so your child and the school can receive adequate support.
