The extensive research that powers The Thriving Lives Toolkit found that clear policies and deep understanding at a strategic level are key to Service children's outcomes and wellbeing.
Effective schools learn by listening to their Service children and from strong networks and partnerships. They develop a whole-school approach to planning and monitoring strategies and support. They make sure leaders, staff and governing bodies understand the Armed Forces lifestyle and the impact it can have on Service children, so they can make sure that resources are well-targeted.
