School Description

Lypiatt Primary School and Early Years Centre is a very small school situated within an army base called the Services Cotswold Centre. It is the only primary school in the country serving armed forces’ families needing temporary accommodation following separation, bereavement, or discharge from the services or other welfare reasons. The majority of pupils are known to be eligible for free school meals. Pupils transfer from a large number of schools, usually from Germany, Cyprus and other countries. There are two newly built accommodation blocks for the use of severely wounded soldiers and their families following injury in Afghanistan. The school offers temporary admission to any children in these families. Pupils stay at the school for short periods ranging from one or two weeks to three months (on average), with a few staying up to ten months until their families find alternative accommodation This means there is a constant turnover of pupils joining and leaving the school. There are three classes in the school; one for Key Stage 1 pupils, one for Key Stage 2 pupils, and Nursery and Reception children are taught in the Early Years Centre. Most pupils have significant and varying emotional needs and often have learning difficulties. The majority of pupils are from White British backgrounds with a very small proportion from minority ethnic families. No pupils speak English as an additional language.
