Deployment - A new series of books perfect for your Little Troopers.

Little Troopers story books
We are so beyond excited to share some news with you.....we have just launched a very special series of story books. Written by Donna David and illustrated by our regular illustrator Dan Butcher we're confident that they will help lots of our Little Troopers.

They explore the feelings, emotions and situations often faced by military children from the view point of a Little Trooper who is writing letters. There is a book for the British Army, Royal Air Force and the Royal Navy. You can buy yours now from our shop for just £3.50 plus P&P. 

Site of former Bovington Middle School - Dorset County Council Decision Announced

More than £3M is being invested in education for children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in Dorset. 
Dorset County Council’s Cabinet has recently agreed to spend just over £2M – plus a £1M grant from central Government – catering for children with complex communication needs. However, the costs will be fully recouped over a short period of time.

This includes a new purpose-built school in Bovington for September 2020. Funded by the Education and Skills Funding Agency, it will provide places for 160 children with autism,
as well as social, emotional and mental health needs. 
The school will support pupils from Dorset, Bournemouth and Poole. 

This will provide an essential service to the Community whilst saving considerable time money and effort as many of these pupils are currently transported a considerable distance for their education, many out of County altogether.

The old school in Bere Regis will be used in the interim from September 2019 for one year with up to 40 pupils being housed there before they transfer to the new school in Bovington.

Not only is this good news educationally but it will provide an injection into the economies of both Bere Regis and Bovington with a large number of ancillary jobs and services being
required to support the schools.
