The University of Winchester worked with SCISS (Service Children in State Schools) to host the South East SCISS conference. SCISS is an affiliation of the 6000 plus state maintained schools in England that have children of service personnel on roll. The SCISS National Executive acts as an advisory group to the government on issues around educational disadvantage and promotes good practice in the provision of education for service children.
Conference delegates included senior leaders from schools across the south east, local authority officers and welfare professionals who support service pupils. The conference celebrated SCISS’ achievements since 2003 and brought together partnerships to shape its future development. Delegates and expert speakers explored welfare issues and the impact of service families’ diverse cultures and heard about the latest research.
