Festival of Friends toolkit and school case studies

A toolkit for practitioners and schools supporting service children

The University of Winchester, in partnership with Hampshire County Council, successfully trialled a new model of collaborative activity for supporting service children across the region. Their toolkit shares the two organisations’ experiences of developing and delivering the project and includes case studies of schools activities.

Festival of Friends Toolkit: organisers' reflections and school case studies on how to set up and run initiatives for service pupils, all drawn from award-winning projects submitted by Hampshire schools.

The model was developed further in North Yorkshire in 2021, with the key aims of developing and sharing good practice across schools with Service children on roll, whilst also promoting progression to further and higher education: with the ultimate goal of improving outcomes for this key group of North Yorkshire’s pupils (about 6%).
