MKC Heroes

MKC Heroes meets once per term with Mrs Tucker after school.


Here, we raise concerns, talk about worries and create fantastic projects together. It is a true pupil voice group. The names of the group comes from the idea that in your own home you can be a Hero, supporting the parent left behind, caring for your brothers and sisters and being brave when your parent or family member is in a dangerous place.


Emotional Support

It is “a safe place to talk because you know your friends will understand how you feel because they feel the same”. We can speak openly about our issues and challenge our schools to respond, through the group rather than having to single ourselves out.


Many Heroes experience the trauma brought about by the cycle of Service deployment and value support that does not make us feel ‘different’. Our motto, ‘Together as One’, was devised around this theme, by combined agreement, as was our logo, drawn by a primary school member. The key words we use to show the support that we want from MKC Heroes are: strength, hope, trust, care and support.

Art and Craft Packages 

During the lockdown in early 2021, Mrs Tucker applied for and received 18 art and crafts packages from The Armed Forced Covenant Trust. These were distributed to our MKC Hero children who had great fun using the resources at home! 

Apple Store MKC Event October 2019

MKC Heroes arts and crafts event held at 165 Port & Maritime Brigade, Derriford.

Some of our MKC Heroes visited The Lord Mayor and local politicians in the council chambers.

This is a trip the children took to the Army Reserve Centre at Derriford to look at life in in the army.

One of the members was formally invited by the Lord Mayor to represent the school during the Remembrance Service at the Royal Naval War Memorial.
