SCHOOLS in Wales felt the emotional impact of separation was the biggest challenge to service children’s primary education, according to a recent survey.
For older children, the biggest hurdle was making friends and missing parts of the curriculum.
Supporting Service Children in Education Cymru conducted the survey to help the Welsh local authority to better understand the needs of military children.
The views of schools, parents and children are instrumental in planning new resources as well as contributing evidence to make changes to policy and systems.
The survey will be circulated to schools in October and the findings will feed into the SCiP Alliance’s Year of the Service Child Voice project.
