Ofsted: Children of armed forces families need better support

Service children who face regular moves from home and school can suffer high levels of anxiety and stress, especially when their parents deploy to armed conflicts overseas, according to a report by Oftsed, the the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills in England.

The report, 'Children in Service families. The quality and impact of partnership provision for children in Service families', found that this problem was exacerbated because systems of transfer of children's records between schools were not always properly coordinated and important information was therefore delayed or did not arrive at all.
