HM Forces

 

Our school community contains a significant proportion of military families with approximately 30% of our pupils with one or more parents serving in the Armed Forces.  As a school we take our role of supporting our community seriously and offer support and involvement to these families.  Strong links with our parents and serving units are important to us and we appreciate their support.

 

We actively encourage Forces involvement with the school and have enjoyed a great deal of Army support at our Armed Forces Days (see Photos).  In previous years we have sent Christmas shoeboxes to soldiers in Afghanistan, organised cake sales in aid of Help for Heroes and saved stamps to help buy equipment for wounded soldiers. 

 

The Children's Education Advisory Service website https://www.gov.uk/childrens-education-advisory-service holds a great deal of information for Forces families that you may find useful if you are moving to or away from Kimpton Primary School.
