Our Dandelion seeds has been set up to support our service children and their families within our school. We meet on a Friday lunchtime at 12.30. We aim to:-
Help settle new children and make the transition into their new class as easy as possible.
To meet other service children within the school in an informal and fun setting.
Support the children, when Mum or Dad might go away, by letter writing, drawing pictures, having a chat with other children who are or have experienced the same feelings.
To be there as a friendly ear for any situation. Karen Jones has a number of resources that may help you and your child at home during difficult times. Please just come in and ask or drop Karen an e mail. We also have a copy of the book, "My Daddy's Going Away" (see the link below), if you would like to view it.
The Dandelion Seeds is run by Karen Jones our Service Children’s Coordinator who has 20 years experience of working as a teaching assistant.
We also offer pastoral support for both parents and children as and when needed.
Other services that we offer:-
* 1-1 sessions with Karen
* Extra Curricular support if required
* SEN/SENCO support and advice
* Moving schools booklets
* Great links between Military and School
* Charity days , for example Help for Heroes/Red White & Blue Day/Armed Forces

Our children also get to share their experiences with the whole school by holding special Assemblies.
