Armed Forces Day

For Schools

Teachers: Show your support for Armed Forces Day by using our assembly kits!

Two school assembly plans are now available supporting the message of Armed Forces Day:

  • Primary school audience / 7-11 year olds
  • Secondary school audience / 11-16 year olds

Pupils are asked to consider in simple terms, ‘Why have Armed Forces today?’ and ‘Why should we acknowledge and support their work?’

Pupils are guided to make links from how they act in school or their communities, to how nations and large groups of people act towards each other – and how some people choose to help others. Our assembly plans offer ideas about values and beliefs, of peoples’ rights and responsibilities and of the need to respect others. Each plan includes comprehensive teacher’s notes, extension activity ideas for taking part in further themed activities and regional curriculum links.
