Our Military Children

At St Athan Primary School, we recognise that the child of a Service family may, at some point in their lives, need support with their learning, settling into new situations and/or mental health and wellbeing, as a result of their unique circumstances. We are committed to understanding the needs of all learners, especially our Service Children and, using the following guidance and websites, will support them throughout their education.

The SSCE Cymru definition of a Service child is:

A person whose parent, or primary carer, serves in the regular armed forces, or as a reservist, or has done at any point during the first 25 years of that person’s life.

The definition of a Service child varies between different organisations but are always consistently focused on supporting children of Service personnel.
