At Widey Court Primary School around one fifth of our pupils have parents in the armed forces. All of our service children are our Military Kids Club Heroes and we do our best to support them.
We have spoken to our service families about the challenges that they face and do our best to support them in school.
I will let you know as soon as we are able to safely run our lunchtime KIT Clubs, details of which are below.
We run three lunchtime clubs every week called KIT Clubs. KIT stands for “Keeping in Touch”. There is one on a Tuesday lunchtime for service children in Key Stage 1, on a Thursday lunchtime for KS2 and from 2pm - 2.30pm on a Thursday afternoon for Foundation stage childen. The clubs are always very well attended and the children love knowing that there are others in the same situation as them, especially when a parent is deployed.
Field Gun Club
I will let you know as soon as we are able to safely run our field gun club, the details of which are below
This club is open to children from years 4, 5 and 6 and we are helped by veterans from Devonport Field Gun Association with whom the school has close links. This is a fantastic activity and Widey Court Primary School were one of the first schools to become actively involved. We have performed brilliantly in the annual inter school junior field gun competitions held on Plymouth Hoe on Armed Forces Day. We are supported by veterans from Devonport Field Gun Association
