The committee recommends a collaborative focus on data:
We agree with the recommendations made by the SCiP Alliance that a coherent Government approach should be developed to track the number and location of Service children across the UK and internationally which can be shared with researchers seeking to understand the causal relationship between the mobility of Service life and the effect on educational attainment.
