Eye opening visit to Lypiatt Primary School and Early Years Centre

Lypiatt Primary School
It was an eye opening visit to Lypiatt Primary School and Early Years Centre within the Services Cotswold Centre; a MoD establishment comprising 61 housing units for families who need temporary accommodation usually related to discharge from the services, family break-up, or bereavement. Families frequently arrive at short notice, with no certainty about their future and often in vulnerable circumstances.

I met with a number of children and families who have been evacuated from Nepal due to the devastation caused by earthquakes and tremors. It was humbling to experience their bravery and the help that our Corsham school had given them.
