School-Home Support makes a real difference to disadvantaged children's and young people’s lives and futures by tackling the problems behind persistent truancy and withdrawn or disruptive behaviour and which are responsible for underachievement at school.
Our specially-trained, independent workers are active in over 160 schools, working in school and at home with children, young people and their families to resolve the problems behind poor school attendance and low learning attainment.
Last year 79% of pupils who were classed as persistent truants (missing school for 20% or more of the time) when they were first referred to us improved their attendance; while 56 % of all the pupils we worked with made greater learning progress and 63 % were more involved in school life.
We are active in around 160 schools in some of the country’s most economically and socially deprived areas.
Every £1,000 we receive is equivalent to providing a week’s full support in one of these schools.
