At Wyndham Park we have a growing number of children from service families amongst us due to our proximity to Salisbury Plain and nearby military bases. We welcome admissions applications from service families living within our catchment area. Please follow the Local Authority timelines for normal admissions into Reception and contact the school for more information about whether we have spaces for transferring in-year.

Our service families champion is Mrs S Jarc and she supports our children and families. We have several systems in place to support children if a parent is deployed including a ‘Listening Ear’ teaching assistant for children to talk to, recordable photo albums to send to their family member, play therapy sessions and army teddy bears to borrow from school. In 2014 we were successful in a bid to the Ministry of Defence and, as a result of this funding, our staff have all received training in bereavement, attachment and general behaviour support techniques so that they are equipped to help support any possible emotional and social needs of children from service families.
