Income defines how well children do at school
The link between low income and low academic attainment is greater in the UK than almost any other developed nation. Children eligible for free school meals are less likely to get good GCSEs and go on to higher education.
This makes it more likely they will struggle throughout their lives, widening social inequality. It’s a cycle that we’re determined to break.
We want every child in the UK to have a fair shot at their ambitions.
And you can help.
