The SSCECymru Project is working with schools to better understand the experiences of education providers, and get to grips with the ‘on the-ground’ challenges of identifying and supporting Service Children in Wales. The project is also working closely with Welsh Government’s All Wales Standing Committee for Service Children in Education to support a consistent approach across Wales.
The project has set up a virtual network to share news and updates relevant to schools, local authorities and support organisations working with Service children. If you would like to join the network or want further information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
In June 2015 the first all Wales guide for schools was launched by Huw Lewis AM, Minister for Education & Skills and Leighton Andrews AM, Minister for Public Services.
The guide aims to provide schools and local authorities with information on the challanges Service children may face in school and advice on how to best support them. You can find the guidance here along with the SSCE Cymru Guide for Parents' which was co launched alongside the schools guidance.
We are always looking for more examples of how schools are working with Armed Forces children. If you are currently working with Service children we would love to hear from you, regardless if you are supporting one child or many children.
To tell us about the work you are doing and how that has benefited your pupils or school community please contact the project directly OR download the case study template and return by email to email@example.com
