Lucy Hester goes behind the scenes at RAF Leeming Community Primary School in North Yorkshire, where many children have a parent away at war.

Ninety eight per cent of children have one or two parents serving in the forces.

BBC Inside Out looks at the challenges facing the parents and the children when they are away on duty, often in Afghanistan.

Inside Out Yorkshire and Lincolnshire is on Monday, 14 February on BBC One at 19:30 and nationwide for seven days thereafter on the iPlayer.
