The extensive research that powers The Thriving Lives Toolkit found that creating a school environment attuned to Service children's complex interplay of experiences is key to positive development and wellbeing. While many Service children develop strong coping mechanisms, it would be easy for Service children’s complex lives to be misunderstood, their safeguarding needs to be missed and their huge talents underdeveloped.
Effective schools ensure that Service children feel understood and are ready with tailored support when it’s needed.
