The problem: educational inequality in the UK

Parental income is still the strongest indicator of how well a child will achieve at school and how much they will earn in later life.

At every stage of their education, a child from a low-income family is less likely to succeed.

They are less likely to pass their GCSEs, secure a university or apprenticeship place and progress to sustained, good quality employment.

Over the course of their lifetimes this achievement gap perpetuates, often leading to cycles of low-paid work with few opportunities for carer progression. 

 

It's a cycle we are determined to break.
