Service Families and HMS Ranvilles

Service Families

Ranvilles Junior School is proud to have nearly one third of our children come from HM Forces families. Being seated in the heart of a Forces community we are passionate about supporting all military children who have parent(s) serving in our British Armed Forces.

These amazing children (and families) often face unique challenges including frequent school/house moves, as well as regular periods of separation from their serving parent for varying lengths of time due to training, operations, deployments and postings.

Please enjoy our recent Rememberance Art Day video – A day of reflection across the whole school.

HMS Ranvilles

HMS Ranvilles offers the children the opportunity to talk with their peers, share experiences and celebrate their unique lives with everyone across the school.

Being able to access a “drop-in” at lunchtimes enables them to meet other children with shared experiences, and also meet with others going through the same deployment/posting separation too.

Throughout the course of the year there are many opportunities for the school to focus on the importance of our Service Families and their wider community.

These include:

  • focussed assemblies for Rememberance Day (presented by the Service children themselves),
  • Armed Forces Day celebrations where the Forces community join us and share their service lives/careers with the school
  • April – Military Child month
