North Yorkshire County Council

All of us working in the fields of education, welfare and child care here in North Yorkshire understand the impact that the military lifestyle has on you and your families and never underestimate the enormity of frequent changes in your home, families, work and your children's schools.

North Yorkshire County Council takes a very proactive role at a strategic level in work and practice to reduce as much as possible the potential negative impact of a transient lifestyle and in closing the gap in terms of academic achievement.  Its highly regarded annual conference, the use of student questionnaires, Student Voice summits, annual working parties involving school leaders and County Council staff, preparations for the drawdown and the promotion of the MKC Heroes initiative are all evidence of the commitment to Service pupils at a corporate level which is effectively cascaded down to the schools.  NYCC has been successful in securing funding from the £6m Education Support Fund for State Schools with Service Pupils and monies from this fund are used in a large variety of innovative and imaginative ways in schools around the county.  From this fund we employ 2 Service Pupils' Champions, both military mums, who work within schools to support Service Children and their families.

Our schools recognise that Service Pupils face unique challenges posed by frequent moves, changes in home, school and friends, long periods of separation from loved ones and that because of this at times some pupils require additional support. 

NYCC produce a termly newsletter which is distributed to schools across North Yorkshire, SCE Schools and members of the Armed Forces.  It is a great way to find out how NYCC is supporting Service Pupils across the county.  The latest edition is available to view here.
