At Tweseldown we value the relationships we have with the parents from our forces families. We hold regular coffee afternoons with the parents for an informal chat and the opportunity to get to know new people.
When a member of the family is deployed overseas we support the children by giving them a treasure chest. The treasure chest contains a little teddy for the parent to take away and a big teddy for the child.
We also encourage the children to make a special book about the person who is deployed. We also have members of staff called ELSA’s that are trained to support children during these times.
