The Scottish education system is an institution in which Armed Forces children can thrive. It has a uniquely holistic approach which is specifically designed to support each child’s individual needs and has a long tradition of high standards of attainment and inclusion for all.

The Scottish Government, Local Authorities and schools are working hard to ensure that moving to Scotland has a positive effect on the educational outcomes of children from Armed Forces families. This website has been created in order to bring all these efforts together and put the resources that parents and the education professionals who support their children need, together in one place.
