Support for Service children

Take a look at our guides for ways to support Service children in school.

Children in Service families face some big challenges, such as emotional strain due to parents being deployed, frequent house moves and problems with admission into schools.

The Royal British Legion has explored these challenges and produced best practice guides looking at ways to support Service children in school. The guides share examples of good practice from across England and Wales, and recommend ways in which local authorities, schools and families themselves can improve Service children's experience in education.

The guides explore the adverse effects on a Service pupil’s well-being and provide information on the extra funding available to Service children through the Service Pupil Premium, Education Support Fund and more.
