Highland Council leads a group that promotes better understanding of what service life is like for children and young people. The Military Liaison Group Education aims to ensure your child’s time at school is the best it can be by bringing together organisations, groups and schools to promote and act on the views of families and share good practice and support.
MLG (Education), in partnership with the Royal Caledonian Education Trust, has delivered programmes across Highland schools focusing on wellbeing, positive
relationships, emotional literacy and pro social behaviours.
AFF’s Scotland co-ordinator, Jenny Goodacre, goes along to the MLG meetings, she says:
“It’s an opportunity for me to connect with those supporting military families and hear about the great work being done. I share the work AFF is doing and establish ways in which we can work together.
“I was impressed that MLG is supporting lone military pupils in remote schools, showing that they care about the needs of every child and go out of their way to achieve this.”
