Case studies showing good practice in Oxfordshire
Oxfordshire Service Pupils
On 27th September the LA and the Military Partnership held a conference to bring KS2 and KS3 Service children from across Oxfordshire together. Schools with Service pupils and families were invited to bring up to 10 pupils to the conference. Uptake was fantastic and on the day 140 pupils, along with their teachers, came together to celebrate their unique journey within Oxfordshire schools and to have a voice as to how they are supported and how this support might be improved.
