Military Mates

At Hadleigh Community Primary School we work alongside parents who are members of HM Forces to welcome and support families and children to the school.

Mrs Docherty runs a club, Military Mates, exclusively for pupils whose parent or parents are members of HM Forces. It is not compulsory for pupils to attend and is available as a drop-in club as and when pupils wish to attend. Some children attend every week.

We meet on Mondays from 12.30 PM in the school Library. On the library wall is a world map with drawings of Mums or Dads who are serving, photographs of places where parents may serve abroad and clocks showing times in Afghanistan, Arizona and The Falkland Islands.

Children can come to the club for a chat or take part in a variety of activities some of which are listed below:-

  • Colouring
  • Read blueys from those parents who are away
  • Write blueys as above
  • Find out in the world where their parent/s are
  • Count down on the big calendar to a homecoming
  • Play games like snakes and ladders, Army Top Trumps, Uno and card games like Snap and Happy Families
  • Look after each other
