School-Home Support is a member of the Fair Education Alliance (FEA), a coalition of leading organisations in the UK that are committed to tackling educational equality. The goal of the FEA is to significantly narrow the achievement gap between young people from our poorest communities and their wealthier peers by 2022.
The Fair Education Alliance Report Card 2015 shows that children from disadvantaged backgrounds are less likely to be ready for primary school than their affluent peers and less likely to finish primary school with the necessary levels of literacy and numeracy. It also shows that children from lower income backgrounds are less likely to be employment, education or training at 16 than their better off peers.
|The FEA’s five impact goals to tackle educational inequality|
|Narrow the gap in literacy and numeracy at primary school|
|Narrow the gap in GCSE attainment at secondary school|
|Ensure young people develop key strengths, including character, wellbeing and mental health, to support high aspirations|
|Narrow the gap in the proportion of young people taking part in further education or employment based training after finishing their GCSEs|
|Narrow the gap in university graduation, including from the 25% most selective universities|
