Closing disadvantage gap will take 'over a century'!
New study says it will take over a century for the poorest pupils to catch up with their classmates at GCSE level in England if things stay as they are. Early and sustained support is essential to closing this gap!
We agree that ‘early and sustained additional support for those that need it’ should be a top priority and that a focus on pupil wellbeing will have a positive impact. As well as embedding literacy and numeracy in all our sessions, a big part of the work we do is in promoting pupil wellbeing. Our wide range of therapeutic, outdoor, practical, land-based activities in our peaceful farm and countryside environment help reduce pupil anxiety and give them the time and space to work through the issues they face at school.
