Funded by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust, the AFFS Cymru scheme aims to:

  • Embed good practice for supporting service children.
  • Create a positive environment for service children to share their experiences.
  • Encourage schools to become more engaged with their Armed Forces communities.

Education Minister Mr Miles said: “Congratulations to Ysgol Cwm Brombil on attaining Armed Forces Friendly Schools Cymru status. 

“I am very proud of the support schools in Wales are giving to the children of our Armed Forces. I want all children and young people to be supported to achieve their best. It is right that we recognise and celebrate the school’s achievement.”

Brigadier Andrew Dawes CBE, Head of the Army in Wales, added: “On behalf of the military community based or settled in Wales, I’m thrilled that this scheme recognises the vital support our children receive in the wonderful schools that we are blessed with right across Wales.

“Thank you for your amazing support and for continuing to nurture the education of our children as a Forces Friendly School.”

Ysgol Cwm Brombil has now been awarded an AFFS Cymru Bronze Status badge which can be included on its email signatures and website.

Cllr Nia Jenkins, Neath Port Talbot Council’s Cabinet Member for Education, Skills and Training, said: “Well done to Ysgol Cwm Brombil for achieving Bronze Status in the AFFS Cymru scheme. It reflects the school’s dedication to the children and families of the Armed Forces in the school and it’s fitting this is being announced in Armed Forces Week.”
