Our aim at Southmead is to make your child's transition to our school as smooth as possible and to ensure that they feel part of our school as quickly as possible.
Every child receives a passport and information about the school when they first arrive. This is a pack containing information about your child's school day, a sheet asking your child to tell us about themselves and a postcard to send back to their old school.
During periods of deployment, we run a Troopers club for all children of deployed personnel. Due to current Covid restrictions, we are unable to run the club. However, all children of deployed personnel will be supported within their year group bubbles with deployment packs and activities provided by our pastoral team. Our pastoral team can also provide 1:1 support if needed.
We are a very friendly school so we hope that your child/ren will feel happy and settled as soon as possible. Sometimes it takes a little longer to settle, so, please, if you have any concerns please use the resources on our website and please do not hesitate to contact us. Our pastoral email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
We would like to make Service Families aware of support that may be available if children have special educational needs or disabilities. The Service Families' Children's Education and Advice Service can provide advice, guidance and support, and recommend contacting them if your child has a statutory Education and Health Care Plan (EHCP) or receives support from external professionals e.g. therapists, social workers and specialist teachers. Further information can be found on the government website below.
Initiation of CEAS support requires the service family to complete and submit the following form, and send this to CEAS together with evidence of the child's support needs.
Information Support for the Armed Forces Community
This information pack has been put together to help better support Service families and children within our school. It provides an overview of organisations, services, websites, publications and charities available to support Service families.
