Education Scotland practice exemplars

Education Scotland have compiled school case studies documenting initiatives supporting children from Armed Forces families which were presented at a Good Practice Event in May 2019.

Interventions most frequently cited as having a positive impact on the wellbeing and educational progress of Armed Forces children were:

  • developing good home-school links - supportive relationships with families;
  • developing whole school and classroom nurturing approaches;
  • use of Play Therapy, Mindfulness, and resources/programmes to support pupils who experience loss, change or separation;
  • creating a responsive curriculum, tailoring timetables and offering enhanced transition supports;
  • using targeted literacy and numeracy programmes to accelerate progress;
  • offering 'whole family' support including supporting the wellbeing of parents.
