Commissioned by The Robertson Trust, the Poverty Alliance conducted a review of the poverty-related attainment gap in Scotland highlighting the scale and nature of gaps in attainment between children and young people living in the most and least deprived areas alongside a review of effective interventions and approaches that have been demonstrated to close the gap at key stages of the learner journey. Following on from this, we conducted a mapping of free tutoring provision and mentoring for children and young people living in poverty.
Our work on the attainment gap has fed into the Education, Children and Young People’s Committee’s Inquiry on the Scottish Attainment Challenge.
