MOD Support – Sharing Good Practice Video
This year the school have received funding from the Armed Forces Education Trust( AFET) and Supporting Service Children in Education (SSCE)
Over the last few years our school has been successful in receiving funding from different organisations and charities so we can support the pupils in our school who belong to a Service family.
The funding supports pupils whose parents currently serve for the Ministry of Defence or have done in the last 6 years.
Armed Forces Education
The Armed Forces Education Trust is a charity working for children and young adults whose education has been compromised or put at risk as a result of parents’ past or current service in our Armed Forces.
Supporting Service Children in Education
The SSCE mission is to provide the best possible educational support to children, by ensuring education professionals understand the issues Service children in Wales may face. The project is a Welsh Local Government Association project initially funded by the MOD Education Support Fund and funded by Welsh Government for 2019.
The MOD Education Support Fund (ESF), launched in 2011 and subsequently extended by the Secretary of State for Defence (2018-2020), provided funding to assist publicly funded schools, Academies and Free Schools throughout the UK to mitigate the effects of exceptional mobility and/or deployment of their Service communities; Regular Armed Forces, including Reserves on Full Time commitment (FTRS FC).
MOD Support Welsh Department
The school has been very fortunate to receive funding from AFET this year to support welsh language acquisition.
Miss Jones has been working within the Welsh department, creating resources and displays. She works with many pupils, helping students with Welsh vocabulary and learning. Recently, GCSE revision resources have been created to help year 11 with preparations for the assessments. Miss Jones has been specifically working with MOD pupils with interventions and revision work, which has helped pupils with improving their confidence when speaking and writing Welsh. Ardderchog Blwyddyn 11 a Miss Jones!
