Welcome to our Forces Club ‘HMS Phoenix’
Peel Common Junior School is home to a number of children from Service families. We recognise that Children from Service families are potentially vulnerable due to the nature of the family’s role. We pride ourselves on knowing our children and families well and being able to support the children through what may be a challenging time if parents are deployed. With this in mind we run our Forces Club ‘HMS Phoenix’ weekly during a lunchtime.
The provision is run by our ELSA Mrs Dudley who is a military wife and grew up with a military father. The children bring their lunch and are able to meet other children in the school with similar backgrounds. We offer a safe space to talk, complete an activity, such as our Remembrance Day poppy display, and have fun. We are looking forward to arranging future trips for our club when it is safe to do so.
