Northern Parade are part of Pompey’s Military Kids, and will work collectively with other schools to support the needs of Service children across the City of Portsmouth.
This will mean that there will be an after-school club run every other Wednesday until 4.10 that children can choose to attend. During these sessions, children will have the opportunity to participate in creating the poppy mural wall and socialise with other children who have a parent serving in the armed forces. They will be learning about different roles within the armed forces and learn about different locations within the world where their parents may be serving. They will take part in activities including world maps and creating a service children board showing all the different locations their parents may have visited. There will be stories about separation anxiety and helping service children feel less isolated.
The group will begin on 6th of December and continue every other Wednesday after that date.
This group will take place at the school in a year 6 classroom. Children will need to be collected at 4.10 from Year 6.
