Little Troopers at School

Little Troopers at School is a new project from the charity Little Troopers to help empower both parents and schools when supporting the needs of service children in education settings. We want you to have easily accessible information set out in a way that can be understood and utilised to the greatest benefit.

The first stage of this project is the release of some free, easily accessible information sheets for both parents of service children and schools with service children attending covering various subject areas including;
·      Service Pupil Premium
·      Challenges service children may face
·      Moving schools
·      Effects of separation
·      Best practice

Little Troopers at School will grow throughout 2017 however we hope these information sheets will be a great starting point for you, as a parent or as a school setting.
