Fair Education Alliance

The Fair Education Alliance

The underlying causes of educational inequality are complex and interconnected, and they need to be addressed across the education system and society. No single organisation has the knowledge, resources or expertise to bring about the changes we need to make our education system fair for everyone.

We need to agree what progress is and track it together. And that is why we are part of the Fair Education Alliance.

What is the Fair Education Alliance?

Fair Education Impact Goals

  1. Narrow the gap in literacy and numeracy at primary school
  2. ​Narrow the gap in GCSE attainment at secondary school
  3. Ensure young people develop key strengths, including resilience and wellbeing, to support high aspirations
  4. Narrow the gap in the proportion of young people taking part in further education or employment-based training after finishing their GCSEs
  5. Narrow the gap in university graduation, including from the 25 per cent most selective universities

Launched in June 2014, The Fair Education Alliance is a coalition for change in education comprising 27 of the UK’s leading organisations. Its aim is to work towards ending the persistent achievement gap between young people from our poorest communities and their wealthier peers.

All members have committed to working towards the Fair Education Impact Goals – five measurable statements of progress that follow the educational journey of a child. If these goals are achieved, we will radically narrow key gaps between poorer pupils and their wealthier peers.

The Alliance will use the Fair Education Impact Goals to call for where action is needed – such as numeracy, literacy and access to Higher Education – and develop a programme of far-reaching activity.
