SSCE Cymru Schools & LAs

Schools & LAs


Based on the content of the SSCE Cymru Toolkit, training sessions are now available for schools and other organisations in Wales.


Schools across Wales are being very proactive and doing some great work to ensure that their Service children are not disadvantaged due to the impact of being part of an Armed Forces family.

Service children ambassadors

At SSCE Cymru, we are passionate about pupil voice and we always look to involve Service children in the activities we conduct and resources we produce. There are many ways that SSCE Cymru and educators in Wales benefit from Service children’s involvement.

Royal British Legion 100 competition WALES

For its 100th anniversary the Royal British Legion in Wales is holding a creative centenary competition, with the chance to have your work showcased at the Welsh Festival of Remembrance 2021 this November. We hope that this will be a great opportunity to get involved, learn more about The Royal British Legion and to make your mark in the Legion’s 100th year.

Service children’s quotes

"As soon as we get used to a house, you get moved - I’ve been to four schools and moved six times."


"I lived in Nepal, then we went to Brunei, then Malaysia."


"In my eyes, you have hundreds of friends in different places."


"I’m used to moving now and mixing with the children... I’ve done it so many times, it’s just a normal thing now."


"It's ok talking over skype and that, but sometimes you just want a hug when Dad is away."


"I’ve enjoyed going around to lots of places around the world, it's adventurous and exciting."


"In my eyes, you have hundreds of friends in different places."


"My mum got a chalk board and it says how many sleeps on it with chalk, every minute it’s getting closer for him coming home."


"I don’t want him to get promoted... I want him to get promoted but I don’t want to leave."


"I might be going to boarding school so that I don’t change schools every few years."


"I've been to seven different schools; I’ve not stayed put in one school long enough."


"He has been away for six months and he is back for two weeks, then he goes away again."


"My parents were in the Army. My mum is a like a nurse and my dad went to the war in Afghanistan. I actually didn’t really know what he was doing so I was like, ‘Cool Dad, go there,’ but then I found out and thought, 'Thank God he came back alive.'"


"He signed off last week, so he will be done by the end of this year. He’s done 24 years. I find that better because he will be around a lot. He likes watching us playing rugby, so he will get to see us more."


"I’m going to a new place entirely. They don’t know anything about me and that’s a big restart and that’s really good for me."


"I moved to Wales because my dad was posted in the Army. I thought I would get bullied and I was shy when you meet new people, but I made some friends."
